Conference Photo Essay

Post By Kerrie

It is hard to believe that one week ago today at this time, I was welcoming people to the 8th annual Northern Colorado Writers Conference. The event went off without a hitch and everyone seemed happy. It all went by so fast. I love organizing the conference every year, but it is also nice to be on this side of it.

On Monday Rich reflected on the conference in his post The Creativity Vine and then Lynn shared her thoughts on Wednesday with her post You and Your Work.

Here are some of my favorite highlights from the conference shown through pictures.

It was such a great conference! I love seeing the pictures of so many smiling faces. Awesome job as always, Kerrie!

Have heard nothing but good things about the conference. Way to go, Kerrie.

Also, I think you deserved many pats on the head for your new pitch format. Having writers read their first page to an agent is brilliant ... much better than the "agents read the slush pile" which is also great.

JP, I agree, I now have some nice memories.
Thanks Jenny and Kay.
Kay, I like the new roundtable format. I have a few minor tweaks for next year though.
