Now that we're all back home and wondering what to do with what we learned at KCWC 2009, please remember, it's not all about what you learned. Some of your benefit from attending KCWC this year will come from the people you met.
Follow up by writing notes to faculty, committee members, and other writers who gave you contact information. Use e-mail if possible, because that's the primary communication method that publishers and professional writers use these days. Some of the people you met this year might be your link to getting your work published.
Conference coordinator, Judy Sliger, said, "This was a conference of connections: connecting with other writers, connecting with faculty, connecting with ways to improve our writing. But, most of all, it was about connecting with God's plan for each person as a writer. Now we need to connect our fingers to the computer or our pens to our paper, so we can connect with the readers God wants us to reach!"
Mark your calendar for June 11-12, 2010. Virginia (Ginny) Smith will be our featured speaker, and we'll have other top-notch faculty for workshops and private appointments. Subscribe to this blog to get updates as the committee plans for next year.
