I'm heading to the Romance Writers of America Greater Vancouver Chapter Conference, "Write On, Vancouver" this weekend (May 4-5, 2007) at the Inn at New Westminster (Quay, that is). Head on over if you're a reader (and writer) of Romance. Nancy Kress, accomplished SF and mystery writer, who has written many a piece on how to write (particularly in Writer's Digest Magazine) will be the principal speaker there. Some of the topics she'll cover include that daunting first page and plotting. Editors and agents will be attending too. Meet some local Romance writers, pick up their latest books and get them signed (:-) and meet other avid readers and writers in training. Get tips, network, or just have a great time. It starts at 5 pm on Friday and ends with a gala dinner at 6 pm on Saturday. Hope to see you there.
