I have just been accepted as a presenter at the Muse Online Wrting Conference that will be held in October. I don’t know yet what I’ll be speaking on, but you may assume that it will be my usual articulate blather. I, of course, encourage everyone to see me. And this will be the best conference I will ever have to have attended. I can sit in my house and not leave the couch while sharing my nuggets of wisdom. It’ll be a more intensive version of what I do now.

On a serious note, I do think these ladies have come up with a pretty cool idea. This will allow anyone with an internet connection to participate. Distance isn’t an issue and it allows them to get a huge variety of speakers. And best of all, it’s FREE!

So, below is the PR thing they gave me. I’ll give you more information about what I’ll be speaking about and whether or not I’ll have a critique session as I find out more information.

The Muse Online Writing Conference

Lea Schizas, Editor of The Muse on Writing, and Carolyn Howard-Johnson are sponsoring a virtual writers’ conference on October 9th – 13th 2006 — very possibly the first. This conference offers writers — published or not —  who have not been to a conference, to mingle with some of the publishing world’s personalities, to pose questions and learn from them, and to partake in many of  the F~R~ E~E online workshops we will be hosting:

and come back often to see the newest presenters and workshops. Shel Horowitz just accepted our invitation and we already have dozens of others. Carolyn will be presenting on both book promotion and the craft of writing, specifically “Writing Sparkling Dialogue in 10 Easy Steps.”

[And of course, who would want to miss The Buried Editor? She’ll be the toast of the talks.]
