As a stay-at-home mom to a toddler and a new writer, I’m struggling to learn two new jobs at once. In these times of recession and renewal, writing has helped me de-stress after long days filled with, ‘No, you can’t play with Mommie’s blackberry’ and trying to sneak in much sought after naps in the afternoon. Yet, I fear I still need to hone my passion into a better craft. If you’re an aspiring scribe, or even a seasoned veteran who wants to freshen up, below are a few workshops and conferences that might pique your interest:
At the conference you’ll will have a chance to learn about the art of Memoir, meet several authors and agents and gather information on how to publish your book.
Participants can attend the full 2 day conference or choose just a few classes. The pricing ranges from $45-$220. For more information, please click here: Big Apple Conference Registration

I just joined a writing association called The International Womens Writing Guild (IWWG). The organization is dedicated to nurturing and helping women writers. It seems looks like a great way to network with like-minded peers and learn more about the craft. If you’re a woman writer 18 and older, you may want to check out the organization. Membership is $55.00 for one year and $110.00 for 2 years.
