For the past couple of years I’ve been thinking about going to a writers conference. Ironically, the cheapest for me to go to would be the Kachemak Bay writers conference in Homer Alaska. http://writersconference.homer.alaska.edu/schedule.htm (I think this would be a dream spot for a writers conference for a lot of folks). It’ll still costs a lot though. My story is speculative fiction and only about 60% complete. If I work my rear off until spring, I could have a complete draft. As an aspiring writer, is it worth my time and money to go to one of these things? I don’t know.
