AWP Seattle & London Author Fair – This Weekend

nulondon benWriters will be flocking to Seattle like locust this coming weekend. Why? In case you don’t know, the AWP Writer’s conference is descending on Seattle this week at the convention center and the Sheraton. You can check it out here. BUT, if you can’t or don’t want to attend that, there’s a plethora of free events around the city all weekend. Check them out here and go listen to some poetry, literature, see some art, write in a local café and support your local writing community and those who support us along the way. Keep writin’ Seattle.

And look for JACK REMICK at the conference – R115. Four Ways Blogging Benefits a Writer. (Isla McKetta,  Rebecca Bridge,  Elissa Washuta,  Ann Hedreen,  Jack Remick) Creation, career, promotion, and conversation. Your blog is more than a tool for creating the dreaded “platform.” It can be the hub of your online activity and a source of inspiration. Five digitally-savvy authors share stories of how their blogs inspire them to write, build relationships, and help them get published. We’ll cover Internet best practices and ways blogging gets you noticed by search engines and the people who use them. Learn how being yourself online is your very best asset.

Also, My friend, London author, Toni Allen tells me there’s also a great writers conference happening in London this week,  London Author Fair

It’s Airborne!!!!! No matter what part of the globe you’re on, go write.
