Our Thing

A couple of years ago, my conference going friends and I decided that we needed a change of pace. We’d been attending the Writer’s Institute in  Madison for several years. The conference had treated us well, but we were feeling restless.

Some in-depth research revealed a conference in Las Vegas that sounded interesting. For the same amount of money as the Institute, we flew to Vegas, stayed in the hotel with the conference, met a variety of writers, experienced new workshops and sessions, and were able to book an afternoon with Donald Maass.

Since that first foray break from our comfort zone, we have ventured to Colorado, Philadelphia, and this year, New Jersey.

It’s kind of our thing now.
And I love it!

I’ll be flying out of Newark today after four days at the Rutger’s 3rd Annual Writer’s Conference. Give me a week to organize my thoughts and I’ll eagerly share our experiences.

Spoiler alert: We had some FANTASTIC experiences.



About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
