I feel somewhat like Chicken Little running up and down the streets shouting, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!” only no one listened to her. I pray that doesn’t happen here. 🙂 In fact, I pray just the opposite. That a whole host of people will read this and learn it’s a GOOD thing that the writers are coming to town.
That’s right. It’s time for the 8th annual ACFW Conference, and it’s coming to Denver!
Some have already started arriving, but by Thursday, there will be over 500 authors, writers, editors, agents and other industry professionals present at the Denver Marriott Tech Center for fun, fellowship, training, networking, and delicious food! As a friend always says, “It’s all about the food.”
I’m thrilled to see the conference come to a town near me…even if I can’t take advantage of it due to lack of funds. But I can still come up and hang out in the lobby and see all my friends passing by on their way to somewhere important. 🙂 Just being present at the hotel will be a treat, as I can soak up the atmosphere and ride on the wave of excitement that fills the air each year at this conference.
It’s the premier fiction writer’s conference in the country, and the authors that come out of this organization are top notch, some even going on to become best-selling and award-winning authors. The training and instruction and mentoring can’t be equaled anywhere else that I’ve found. So many members have a heart to help, which is truly inspiring.
And where else are you going to find over 100 authors all signing in the same place? You heard me right. Over 100. Go here to find a complete list.
So, Denver….look out! We’re going to take this city by storm, make our mark and leave our calling card once we’re gone.
