LDStorymakers Conference 2012

I went to a writing conference! The LDStorymakers Conference was my first conference and it was very educational (and a blast). I met a lot of great authors. Some highlights from the conference:

Sparkling Creativity by Melanie Jacobson
The Hero's Journey by Annette Lyon
It Came From the Slugh by Holly Root
Agents! And AUthors! And Bears! Oh My!!! by Michelle Wolfson and Kiersten White
Amazing Dinner (yum!)
Mass Book Signing by LDS Authors (see pics below)
Keynote Address by Kevin J. Anderson
Creating an Awesome Author Website by Abel Keogh and Marion Jensen
Plotting by Kiersten White
Chemisty 101 by Michele Holmes
Agents and Editors Panels
Awesome Door Prizes (although I didn't win any. shucks.)

At least these were the classes and events I was able to attend. There were so many other classes that looked great. I wish I could have gone to them all. Thanks to the LDStorymakers Conference Committee for an awesome time!

My sister Kelly and I had a lot of fun attending classes together.

    I want to go to one, when I have the money and a manuscript.
