Mark your calendars! We now know the dates for the 2010 Muse Online Writer's Conference. The conference will be held the week of October 11-17, 2010 and...the conference is FREE!
The conference is made up of workshops and question and answer sessions. These cover every genre of writing from poetry to erotica to writing for children. You can also take workshops covering web site management, humor, grammer, promoting your book and much more!
The workshops are held in private message boards and are open 24/7 during this time. It's held this way so anyone, no matter what their schedule or time zone, can attend. The workshops are always run by experienced presenters. In most of these workshops you'll have daily assignments. In others you get valuable information. Actually, you get valuable information in all of the workshops. You can take as many or as little of the workshops as you wish. I've heard that some take twelve to fourteen of them. I couldn't do that! I'm glad what we take is up to us.
There are also Question & Answer sessions held in chatrooms on the Muse Online Conference page. These Q&A sessions are in real time. You'll be told which chat room which session is in and where it's at. These sessions are held by experts too and again the information is valuable!
Lea Schizas (creator of the Muse Conference) starts sending out information in September. We'll recieve the schedules to choose our chats and workshops from them. Be sure to get extra printer paper and ink since these schedules are huge! You'll recieve information almost daily during September.
I mentioned befor that the conference is free. It is! You can donate if you wish. Just like in church, how much you donate (if you decide to) and how much is completely up to you. You donate through PayPal on the conference homepage.
On the last day of the conference, there is always a farewell party. This isn't mandatory either. These are always a lot of fun. At the 2009 party we had dancing elephants in tutus there! Also, it doesn't matter how long you attend the party. At my first year there, I was so tired by the end of the week I was only able to stay for fifteen minutes. I kept falling asleep at my computer! I made it for 1/2 hour this year before I had to say my goodbyes.
