WriteOnCon is a free conference that officially begins Tuesday, August 14th (although they are accepting work for critiques on Monday) and runs through Wednesday, August 15th.
I have never participated in this conference in the past, but having checked out the website, it looks like a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the craft and the business and it's FREE! (I love ALL things free.) Even though I go back to school on Wednesday, I plan on checking it out. There are scheduled events throughout both days and a transcript available of discussions that you might miss. Great, right?
Here is their website for more information:
