The 2011 edition of the Grand Rapids Region Writers Group “I’ve Always Wanted to Write a Book” Conference is over. I had a wonderful time, met a lot of great writers, spread the word about our group and gave a fun, interactive workshop on plotting. Jacqueline Carey gave a warm, funny and inspiring keynote speech, and literary agent Michelle Grajkowski took pitches from a lot of our authors and requested many proposals.
I continue to be impressed with the group of our writers and am so, so glad we had a chance to showcase them this weekend.
Thanks again to the conference committee. You made the impossible happen. No one should underestimate the power of these six women.
I look forward to working with them on the next conference.
