Write Stuff Wrap-up

The Write Stuff Writer’s Conference was this past weekend and a great time was had by all. First off, I have to thank Phil Giunta and the rest of the people at the Greater Lehigh Valley Writer’s Group for putting on a fun conference. Also, I have to thank Kristen Lamb for bringing an incredible energy to the show. Not only was it fun sitting through her presentations, but she was a genuinely fun person to hang around with, especially at Waffle House on Friday evening.

The Writer Beware panel on Friday night was well attended and there were a lot of good questions that came from the audience. We spent some time discussing vanity publishing, self-publishing, printers, and packaging (hiring people to help with the publishing, but keeping control for yourself). There were follow-up conversations at the social on Friday evening and again on Saturday as I ran into people who’d attended the night before.

The Historical Writing panel was good, but I had to shift gears. I was more prepared to talk about writing historical fiction and most of the attendees were there for writing historical non-fiction. Luckily, research is research, so I think we all got something out of the panel (they had some good suggestions for research I hadn’t even thought of, and it’s always great when I can learn something at a panel too.)

Had some fun conversations at the Book Fair on Saturday too and one of the participants actually recognized the character on my t-shirt, so bonus points there.

My friends (and Shore Leave refugees), Mike Freedman, Aaron Rosenberg, and Steve Wilson, were also presenting and I hear their panels went well also. In general, there was great feedback from the participants and I hope to get back to do this conference again soon.
