Hello from San Francisco where I am at the Writers' Conference.
It's a wonderful atmosphere here and I am super excited to meet writers, poets, agents, editors and many, many more fantastic people!
The atmosphere here is one of liberal hopefulness, of inclusive cooperation and good-natured networking. It's been the perfect introduction to the wide and complex world of publishing with charming people who made me feel really welcome.
I even got to read my work to the audience, as you can see in the photo… pretty terrifying!
If you get a chance, check out these amazing people I met there:
