This past couple of weeks I’ve become an even bigger fan of twitter than normal. Through twitter I learned not only was an erotica writer’s conference happening in the UK, but it was happening right up my road! Straight away I wanted in and contacted the organisers to see if I could get involved in any way. Though my sales have slowed somewhat over this past month my resume is still pretty impressive and the organiser emailed me back almost immediately. I told her I’m a bit of a chicken when it came to standing up in front of a big group and talking but that I’d love to work with smaller groups, looking at individual’s writing and giving edits/critiques and advice.
So the writer’s workshop was born! I’ll be running two sessions with writers either emailing me their piece a couple of weeks in advance for a more in depth edit, or else bringing a piece with them for a quick critique on the day. I’ll also be available for people to chew my ear about what has worked for me and what hasn’t.
I’m really excited to be involved and I’m now willing March 2012 to roll on round.
Keep reading for some more info on the conference.
I hope to see you there!
