Editors' Intensive

I'm going to this conference in September :) http://writersdigest.com/events What I'll be doing:

* a full day of hands-on workshops, in a small-group setting, designed to help you understand why you might be getting rejected and how to improve your pitch and your manuscript
* plenty of time for interaction and questions relating specifically to your work and your experience
* information on how to get your book published, either traditionally or on your own
* insider advice on how to approach and query literary agents, editors, and publishers
* how to build your own site or blog—as well as use the newest online tools, including Facebook & Twitter—to build your career
* step-by-step information on building an author platform
* a community of like-minded writers to share information and experiences with (we are proud to say that our attendees continue to stay in touch with each other after the event!)
* a free subscription to WritersMarket.com, plus a list of potential markets for your work

This summer I'm applying for a membership with RWA and in the fall will be going for my Bachelor's degree in English Literature. I'm very excited to get my career going this year!
