Upcoming Conferences On Pitching

I want to give you all some advance notice of some great chances to learn about the business of publishing as well as getting to pitch your projects to some great professionals out there.

The staff behind the organization and instruction of the Homeric Writers’ Retreat & Workshop are excited to announce The Portland Writing Workshop AND the Seattle Writign Workshop — a full-day “How to Get Published” writing event just outside Portland, on February 20, 2015 and February 21, 2014 respectively.
This writing event is a wonderful opportunity to get intense instruction over the course of one day, pitch a literary agent or editor (optional), get your questions answered, and more. Note that there are limited seats at the event (100 total). All questions about the event regarding schedule, details and registration are answered below. Thank you for your interest in the 2015 Portland Writing Workshop!
This year, they have brought in my good friend, Chuck Sambuchino from Writer's Digest!
