2009 Muse Online Writers Conference

Have you heard of the 2009 Muse Conference? It’s a FREE online writers conference that will be held during the week of October 12-18. This year, there will even be pitch sessions with agents and publishers, not to mention all the weeklong workshops and chat forums.

The coordinator has extended the deadline for registration to September 20, so hop over there and sign up. This will be my first year attending and I’m super excited. I can’t believe all the workshops. How can I not take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to learn?

Will I see you there?

  5. I 'signed up' through the Yahoo group but I couldn't find anything posted about the Sept 20th deadline... but I'm taking YOUR word for it, since there's so much info on that site (I got a little confused... I hope I signed up correctly, heh). Here's hoping it's as amazing as it sounds! Thanks for the heads up!

  6. I wish I could dedicate more time to it -- that week is filled w/ dr apts and work meetings. But, maybe I'll spy. And, maybe you can give some tips on what you learned...

  7. That's great that you'll be there, gals. The coordinator e-mailed those who are already registered to tell us we can invite our friends until the 20th. I guess she never updated the site. I believe you have to fill out a registration form (it's a tab from the link I mentioned in my post). I'm not sure signing up through the Yahoo group will work...

  8. Thanks Lynnette, I went back to the website but I can't seem to find a form anywhere... maybe the website isn't displaying properly? I think I may have to just email the coordinator.

  9. Faith: My bad. I thought I remembered filling out a form, but it must've been for something else. You do just join the loop and set to individual e-mails. In the file section, you'll find the agenda so you can register for the pitch sessions, the workshops, and the chats. This has to be in by the 20th.
