A Special Contest for all pre-registered attendees
Conferences are an ideal place to network, learn, and feed your muse. But, wouldn’t it be nice to have the best vantage point? No craning your neck to see the speakers. No climbing over other writers when you need to take a break. No kicking the chair in front of you.
Well, hold onto your seat! The winner of this contest will receive reserved front row seating (maybe even two.) It costs nothing but a sense of humor and a splash of creativity to enter.
Your challenge:Submit a list of 5-10 things never to do at a writer’s conference. You’ve probably heard agents and editors tell of personal horror stories about eager writers who take the term “persistence” to an extreme and often creepy level. Stretch your imagination here. Be original. Be hilarious. Be absurd. Be entertaining. Make us laugh out loud.
I will recruit the help of two authors/conference veterans to choose the winning submission.
1.) You cannot enter this contest until you are registered for the conference. Register here
2.) Your submission must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb.1st.
Be sure to include your name, and email address
Please limit your submission to one page
3.) Write contest entry in the subject line of your email
4.) Keep it clean, folks. Nothing obscene, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate.
5.) Have fun with your entry.
Winner will be:
1.) Awarded front row seat(s)
2.) Featured in the pre-conference video (unless you’re too shy. If so, we’ll whisper our congratulations)
3.) Acknowledged at the conference.
4.) Presented a button to proudly wear around town!
5.) Acknowledged on this blog, along with your creative words. With your permission, of course.
Now, what are you waiting for. It’s time to have some fun!
