You’re a newbie—your first time attending a writers conference. Feelings of being lost, overwhelmed, and out of place are hidden behind your excitement. Whether you are a wanna-be writer, a new writer, or an already-published writer, attending a writers conference is something that you have discovered you need to do.
So, now what? The Kentucky Christian Writers Conference has prepared a special workshop just for you by inviting Carlton Hughes from his position as professor at Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College to teach you how to get the most out of your conference experience. Carlton will be giving advice on how to talk to editors, ways to promote your work, and the importance of developing relationships in the writing world. Carlton is a veteran of KCWC as well as Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, where he is a two-time first-place winner in the Writers Contest.
Make So You’re A Newbie number one on your workshop list for KCWC. Bring along a notebook, pen, business cards (for those important relationship contacts), and all of the excitement you can stand. Carlton will greet you with a hearty laugh, and you will leave his workshop prepared to thoroughly enjoy the rest of your conference.
