Writing Cons, Workshops, Agents, oh my!

I decided to try and make a few cons next year (at least one!) and went out on the net to find what will be available. Wow. There are more writing workshops, agent pitches, and conferences for writers and fans of books than you can ever imagine.

Here is the short list I compiled of the biggies, or ones that you may recognize.

Left Coast Crime
March 2010
Los Angeles, CA

February 2010
Boca Raton, FL

Thrillerfest V
July 2010

Killer Nashville
August 2010
Nashville TN

Magna Cum Murder
October 2010
Muncie IN

October 2010
San Francisco, CA

And that is just a sample. If you are like me, it means saving money to be able to participate in these events, so you might want to start looking at the budget NOW.

Hope to see YOU at one of these events in the coming year!

I'd love to see you try the Public Safety Writers Association's conference in Las Vegas, Anyone who signs up before March 31 will be on a panel. It's small and you'll have an opportunity to get all your questions answered about law-enforcement, fire fighting, undercover work, forensics, promotion, etc.

Have questions? email me at

That's awesome, Kim! I'm gonna have to take a closer look at your list. I know I'm going to at least one con next year (RT! HOLY CRAP!) and I'm thinking about others.

If you're only planning on one, come to Magana!

Cool, Kim! This is one thing I haven't done yet, since leaving my family has been tough on them. But someday in my future - I will be there!
