|Ten Acres of Tranquility|
The event began on Friday afternoon. After check in we attended our first Q&A session, emceed by the amazing Lee Wind, then the real work began. We broke up into prearranged, by the talented Sarah Laurenson, groups of four, and scurried off to our meetings.
Throughout the weekend we stayed in the same groups of four and repeated this scurrying process five times over the next two days. This is why we needed all the snacks! In addition to providing all our meals, 24 hour coffee and tea, as well as room and board, they provided snacks! Every meeting room had enough snacks to satisfy any sweet or salty craving we had. Of course the snacks were not the highlight of the weekend; getting a chance to present my work to two agents and an editor was. This was a scary proposition, but I did it, and came back wiser as a result.
As I stated in an earlier blog post, this event ran Friday through Sunday, which means there is too much to share in one post. If you get a chance, stop by on Wednesday, where I'll be sharing great tips and tidbits from the agents and editors.
