Elysabeth Chai,

Every year about the second or third week of October. Sign-ups or registration starts in June I believe. Lea works hard to put this together. I was a presenter last year of sorts when I was editing for the Magazine of Unbelievable Stories. I didn't get a chance to participate as much as I would have liked to but it's always fun to have another outlet where you can gain so much information pertaining to your writing. Be on the lookout for this next year and maybe you can participate. It can't hurt.

I'm doing well, staying busy. Catch you in the postings - E :)

Chai I can't believe it! An online, free Writer's Conference?! I SO should've signed up for that...:(

Ah well. Another opportunity will come by and not slip through my fingers someday.

Hope you're doing well, Elysabeth. :)
