I attended the Pikes Peak Writers Conference in Colorado Springs last weekend. It was well-run with a wide variety of workshops to help writers improve their craft, learn how to query agents and editors and improve their promotional skills.
I taught three workshops: Mixing Humor, Mystery and Older Characters; Balancing Writing and a Full Time Job; and Rejection Is Not a Four Letter Word. In addition I was on an amateur sleuth panel with Robert Spiller and J. A. Kazimer.
The keynote speakers included Mary Kay Andrews, Andrew Gross, R. L. Stine and Seanan McGuire.
All-in-all a valuable weekend.
