    One of the pricier ones, although they do have some big names attending as speakers. Has the instructors' work reached the level you want to achieve? Worst case, it's an expensive networking session in the Big Easy.

    [Conference] Pen to Press Retreat

    I've been receiving (unsolicited) emails about this retreat for a while, but today's took the cake:

    "This is being sent to you because you submitted a story to a publisher that
    wasn't published.

    They felt that it just needed some more work on your part and forwarded your email to me in hopes that you might be interested in the following workshop."

    I don't believe for a second that this happened, given that I don't submit to publishers, and am annoyed by the whole concept.

    Is anyone else getting these random emails about the Pen to Press Retreat?

    It's a shame they're spamming, especially like that. There's still some good names attending.
