July 20 (Thursday) — Antoinette Kuritz, SDWEG honorary member and founder of the La Jolla Writers Conference, will offer tips on getting the most out of attending writers conferences at the next program meeting of the San Diego Professional Editors Network (SD/PEN). The meeting, “To Attend or Not to Attend: Choosing the Right Writers Conference for You,” will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the San Diego County Health Services Complex.
The right writers conference can not only be pivotal to a writer’s career, it can be a great boon to editors looking to find new clients. But between travel expenses and the cost of conferences themselves, attending a conference can be a major investment. What should you look for, how can you vet a conference, and how do you best take advantage of what a conference has to offer both editors and writers?
Antoinette Kuritz is the founder of STRATEGIES, a firm that focuses on literary development, publishing, business modeling, marketing, and public relations. She has worked with self-published, small press, and NY Times best-selling authors. This past year, The Kuritz Group, Inc., launched Nightstand Press.
The cost is free to SD/PEN members and only $10.00 for nonmembers. The evening will include snacks and beverages as well as the opportunity to network before and after the presentation. RSVP via email to email@example.com no later than Wednesday, July 19.
