Con Report: Denton County Writer’s Conference: Intro

On June 27, 2009 I attended the first annual Denton County Writer’s Workshop.  This event was an all-day affair hosted by the North Branch of the Denton Public Library.  Every Tuesday night a writing critique group organized by Jack Pettie meets at the North Branch; this group served as the impetus for a county-wide, free conference for writers.

There were about 45 attendees and a total of six different speakers.  Every one seemed to enjoy the conference and the presenters dispensed a lot of really useful information.  As one speaker pointed out, usually you’d be paying $75-100 for an event like this.  I hope that the library and the critique group continue this tradition.  Denton County is an arts-rich area of Texas and events like this really provide support for local talent.

Speakers and Topics

I am providing a “Reader’s Digest” version of the presentations.  Each session will be a separate post followed by a wrap-up post when I’m done.  Hopefully you’ll find the information as useful as I did.  If so, be sure and share the love with the presenters and seek out their “stuff”.

I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
