How many of you have attended a writing conference? Or some kind of conference for something you're interested in? Was it beneficial? Did you feel like you received your monies worth?
I have attended writing conferences since 2005 and all have been great and they have all been Romance Writers of America. Either the national conference or a chapter conference. That is until last weekend.
I attended the DFW Writers Conference. There were writers from non-fiction, screen writers, magazine journalists to Romance writers. It was an awesome experience. Diverse topics were offered and I learned about non-fiction and screen writing. I came away inspired and ready to start a new project.
Not to mention I met some great new friends. All in all, I'd suggest finding a conference that is a little outside your genre and broaden your horizons. I still want to attend my RWA conferences, but it's nice to have a different view.
So tell me your best experiences.
