Muse Online Conference 2008


Some of you might remember me mentioning this before, and some of you may even have gone the previous year, but it's time to set aside a week in October (October 13 - 19, 2008) for the Muse Online Conference. This is a free conference with no cover charge, no transportation costs, and you can participate in live panels in your jammies :). The conference signup deadline is September 1st so you don't want to delay too long if you're planning on attending.

I will be teaching a forum workshop on telling details this year, those elements that a writer needs to highlight in a scene so the reader is right there with the characters. The difference, in my head at least ;), between a workshop and a class is that in a workshop, the participants get to do all the work. If you've joined in on any of the Forward Motion workshops, you already know what I mean. If you haven't, this is your grand opportunity to discover the difference.

There are dozens of other lectures, classes, workshops, chat sessions, and probably some variations I can't think of on offer from authors around the world and in pretty much every area of writing possible. Whatever your particular interest or weakness, odds are you'll find something, or more likely twice as many somethings as you have time for. Some, like mine, are 100% forum to allow participants to join in no matter what the time zone. The chat presentations though are at specific times dependent on where the instructors live.

I should have posted when I first saw this, but thank you. Every year I meant to sign up, and every year I forgot. This year I blogged about it and spread the word.

Fantastic :). Glad I caught you then. I've actually been in on it since the beginning (first as a participant and then a co-presenter) and it's more than worth the time and energy. And you can't beat the price :).

That's right, Margaret, I don't think you can beat the FREE price tag. :)

Hope to see you this year Jodi.
