You guys probably all know this already, but in case (like me) you've been living under a rock recently (my rock's name is preparing-detailed-mathematics-self-study-booklets), there's this thing happening from Tues 16th Aug to Thurs 18th Aug called WriteOnCon. It's an online writers' conference for writers of kidlit, and it's FREE!

From the website: "During the conference, keynote addresses, agent panels, and lectures are presented as blogs, vlogs, moderated chats, webinars, podcasts, and livestreaming. There is also a critique forum, where participants can post query letters and writing samples to receive helpful feedback and comments from their peers and industry professionals. And, as if that weren’t exciting enough, there are also daily contests, giving random winners everything from books to personalized critiques from agents. Transcripts are also available of the entire conference, should anyone have to miss part of it."

I hope to see you all there, though the time zone difference may make things a little difficult for me (and I've tried to register three times for the forum and I keep being told that I'm spam! I mean, come on!).

EDIT: a WriteOnCon administrator manually registered me. Yay! I'm not spam anymore!
