I just attended a writer's conference that was held in Coshocton, Ohio by a local writers' group, the Write-on Writers' group. Okay, I am sure many of you have done this before and consider it pretty ho-hum, been there-done that, etc. However, I found it to be a fairly cool experience and rather wish I could have attended more of the different venues presented. From the keynote speaker, who spoke about writing from the grassroots and the value of "worms", to the closing panel discussion about independent publishers, other publishing options, and the realities of all options, it was eight hours of talking about different types of writing and getting to meet many of the grassroot writers from the state of Ohio. There were eight different discussion groups that discussed different types of writing. For example, there was a venue about songwriting; there was also a venue about poetry as narrative, to name just a few of the options presented.
Overall, it was a well organized event and very well planned. All in all, a satisfying event. The only downside was the fact it was such a beautiful Saturday!
