I recently attended the Santa Barbara Writers Conference in Santa Barbara. I had a great time and would encourage anyone interested in writing to sign up for next year. I was only sorry this was my first time and had missed out on years of mingling with great authors, getting my work critiqued in workshops, and just being around so many like-minded people.
I liked it so much, I’m getting together a local writers group in Santa Barbara so I can keep the positive energy flowing. Since I’ve never participated in such a group, any suggestions would be appreciated.
