What is WriteOnCon, you ask: "WriteOnCon is the brainchild of seven writers who wanted to pay it forward and give something back to the writing community.”
WriteOnCon is a THREE day online conference for child lit writers. It’s free. It has something for everyone, published or pre-published, agented or un-agented.
You work? No problem. Click on over in the evening (or on a break, or while you’re supposed to be working). It’s easy to replay all that’s gone on: Live agent chats - Live author chats – Prizes - Critique Forums – more and more and more, sooooo much more.
Last year was FAN-FRIGGING-TASTIC!!! So mark your calendar, August 16th, 17th, and 18th. You don’t want to miss it. August might seem like a long way off, but it’s not too early to spread the word and get psyched.
Who, you ask, is behind WriteOnCon. That would be these Sensational Seven:
1. Jamie Harrington is a Young Adult Fiction writer represented by Mary Kole of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, Inc.
2. Elana Johnson’s debut novel, POSSESSION, will be published by Simon Pulse (Simon & Schuster) in Summer 2011.She also co-authors the Query Tracker blog, and the League of Extraordinary Writers. Elana is represented by Michelle Andelman of Regal Literary.
3. Casey McCormick is the author of the hugely popular Agent Spotlight series. Part aspiring author, part agent intern, part student, part blogger, part wife and Mom, she’s a marvel of time management.

5. Lisa and (6)Laura Roecker’s debut novel, THE LIAR SOCIETY, will be published by Sourcebooks in Spring 2011. Lisa and Laura are represented by Catherine Drayton of Inkwell Management.
