I have to admit, as a neophyte writer, I haven’t been to any writer conferences yet, at least as a published author.
I did attend a conference about 15 years ago in Berkeley for sci fi writers, and was personally snubbed by Mercedes Lackey, something of a point of honor for me.
And I’m attending Rainbow Con in Tampa with the QSF crowd next July.
So help me out here, some of you more experienced writers – what are your favorite cons, and why? What are the pros and cons of Cons?
