Chicago North Spring Fling Conference!

Are you looking for a writing conference to attend this year? Chicago North RWA's Spring Fling is coming April 25-26!

This is the first writing conference I attended back in 2012 (Spring Fling is every other year). Having now been to RWA nationals, Spring Fling is like a smaller version of the big she-bang, and just as worthwhile.

The conference is held at the Chicago Marriott Northwest in the northern Chicago suburbs.

Keynote speakers:

Lauren Dane
Mary Balogh
Kristan Higgins > one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. She's hilarious!

Agent and Editor appointments
Including Laura Bradford, who owns the agency my agent works for. She's wonderful!

Critiques and read-alouds

Each of the keynotes will teach a workshop, plus Sarah Wendell of the Smart Bitches, Trashy Books blog, and more taught by agents, editors, and authors. See the list here.

Silent auction featuring awesome gift baskets
I just may be putting together a themed gift basket from my RWA chapter. It just may involve these guys:

Yes, there will be a Sueprnatural-themed gift basket. I have already heard squees of delight!

I'm looking forward to meeting new writer friends! I hope to see you there.
