Scottish Association of Writers Conference March 2019

Scottish Association of Writers Conference March 2019

I was at the Scottish Association of Writers Conference for the very first time. I was a little nervous about going by myself and not knowing anyone bar Wendy H Jones. I needn't have worried. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.

There were many workshops during the weekend which were very interesting and informative.

I chose Becoming an Children’s Author: Before and After by Barbara Henderson, Beginner’s Guide to Reaching Your Readers Online by Gillian Duff and Successful Independent Publishing by Robin Cutler.

I thoroughly enjoyed and learned something from every workshop I attended.

With so many different writers at very different stages, at the conference, it was great to get everyone's different ideas on the content of the workshops.

I entered my book - I Can Create Stories - into the competition for a self-published book. I waited nervously when this section was judged. I didn't realise how much I wanted to hear what the judge thought of my book.. I didn't win. First prize went to Philip Paris. I was very pleased with the judge’s comments on my book.

I loved my weekend.

Have you been to any conferences?  If yes, what was the conference and what did you think of it?


I would love to hear from you if you’d like to contact me.
