For myself, you have all given me a great break. My next conference is the RWA National conference in July. Why did this occur?
- No, I did not turn down conferences.
- No, I am not already booked for other things.
- YES, no one asked.
And I should say, the same goes for contests. I hear on the loops about how contest coordinators are always in a bind to find final round judges. Hmmm, guess what? The Just Ask rule applies here too!
So, feel free to forward this post to all of your chapter presidents and contest coordinators. There is still time to find agents to come and talk or to do presentations for you. All you have to do is ASK!
