As some of you may know, Five Scribes has close ties to Colorado writing conferences, particularly the Crested Butte Writers Conference, which will be held June 17-19, 2011. http://www.crestedbuttewritersconference.org/ This year, Co-conference Chairs Barbara Crawford and Sandy Competition Coordinator, Theresa Rizzo put me to work. I'll be helping with the workshops, ensuring the speakers have all the visual aids and handouts necessary for attendees to get the most out of the workshops.
And that's what it's all about, isn't it? That the attendee receives his money's worth at a conference. So far, I'm impressed. We have editor, agents and authors presenting some fabulous career, craft and motivational sessions for authors and aspiring authors to put to use in their writing.
Which brings me to you. When you attend a conference, what works better in your mind and/or which do you prefer? Are you content to listen and absorb? Or are you more into interactive workshops? I'd love to hear about the best workshops you've ever attended. You have the floor. Thanks!
