Planning to Attend the Southern California Writers’ Conference

Apparently, it’s a good idea for authors to go to writing conferences; and, supposedly, these conferences are extra useful for unpublished authors who have polished manuscripts and are still seeking agentsĀ (though the chance of actually snagging an agent at a conference is close to nil).

Well, I believe I’ll be going to the Southern California Writers’ Conference in Newport Beach this September. I don’t expect to secure representation, but I’m hoping to clean up my query and learn a few things while meeting other folks in the industry.

Should be fun.

Right?
