If you plan on attending the 6th Annual Round Table Writer’s Conference, please be advised that I will be part of the “Building a Writer’s Life” panel. I’ll be appearing with Diana Spchler and Joseph Mackin. The panel is set to go down on May 1, 2010, at 4:00 PM. I’ll be offering a few unusual angles on what it takes to maintain a writing life and an independent voice in a digital age. There may be jokes. There may be fireworks. There may be an impromptu Plates session, should demand and atmospheric conditions prove feasible. But, above all, there will be practical advice from a capable group for anyone who needs it. Please do stop by and say hello, if you can make it.
