Writer's Digest is holding a conference in New York this August, as a lot of you probably know. I am young writer, and very interested in it as it seems like a nice learning experience. The pitch slam is also intriguing. However, I'm a little skeptical about the cost ($400 including pitch slam?), and as a student that barely gets by I'd like to know from any of you that may have attended in the past - is this conference worth it?
I'm still a newbie to the agent/publishing thing so I can't tell for certain if the agents who will be there are any good, but I will do some research later on.
Thanks in advance
