Bitter cold and whipping winds were no deterrent for the barrage of 500 writers taking over New York City this past weekend for the annual Writer’s Digest Conference. We connected, we learned, and most importantly, we were a community.
The weekend was full of sessions on the craft and the business of writing. The days of writers hiding in their rabbit holes and letting agents and publishers do all the business work are over. Nothing was more clear than that. The theme throughout was about making choices and empowering writers.
