Writing conferences, workshops, and author readings are a great source of learning and inspiration. These gatherings provide me with insights about craft, ideas for new stories, and advice on how to handle the challenges of making writing my life’s work. They offer opportunities for creative collaboration and artistic alliances—these are places where we can come together. I also attend and participate in writing workshops and conferences to connect with my fellow writers and support the writing community.

If you are aware of other gatherings, please contact me; I am happy to share this information with my readers.
