Muse Online Writers Conference
This week, is the annual free Muse Online Conference. This extraordinary writers conference is the brainchild of Lea Schizas and her co-founder, Carolyn Howard Johnson. Since its inception, this conference has grown in popularity and the number of presenters has grown along with it. In addition to week long forums where writers can interact with other writers, get feedback from professionals, and input from their peers, writers can participate in live chats with agents, publishers, and published writers.
In recent years, pitch sessions have been added where authors can pitch their works in progress to both agents and publishers. The list of agents and publishers participating grows each year.
Forum offerings include English grammar review, creating a web site, creating a trailer, perfecting your blog, how to write for children, writing for the horror market, editing and book design, blogging, and overcoming writers block. Needless to say, this is just a sampling of the wonderful workshops available.
This has been voted the best writers workshop two years running in the Preditors and Editors poll. It is also one of Writers Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers. If you missed signing up for this year's conference, be sure to watch for registration information for 2011.
