What's a good way to follow the Romance Writers of America Conference this weekend?

I want to say they're doing a live-stream of the RITA Awards tonight (https://www.rwa.org/Online/Awards/RITA_Award/Online/Awards/RITA/RITA_Award.aspx?hkey=cfe8e149-83df-4361-81d4-1b4e5df10902), and it looks like you don't have to be a member to watch. I haven't found a link on their site but it might be worth looking in to, if you're interested.

They had a stream of the final Golden Hearts ceremony yesterday, and that link is here (https://www.rwa.org/Online/News/2019/Golden_Heart_Live_Stream.aspx). I'm currently not logged in to my account, and the stream is showing up.

Otherwise, that's about it. They'll probably post a link to purchase select recordings from the conference later; you'll need to be a member to buy them, however.

I've been reading some great threads on twitter from people sort of live-tweeting workshops. I can link to the ones I've seen, and I'll try to add to it as I see more. Obviously it's one person's perspective on what they're hearing, but it's something.

Sally Kirkpatrick at "Whose Story Is It? Writing Diversely in Romantic Fiction" (https://twitter.com/SuperWriterMom/status/1154751306579488768)

@Aarya_Marsden has a play-by-play of Sherry Thomas's Pacing Workshop. (https://twitter.com/Aarya_Marsden/status/1154448292664639488) (It's the middle of a thread so I'm linking to the first post on Sherry's talk. Scroll down from there.)

Ana Coqui has a thread on Adrianna Hererra's workshop about writing relationship dynamics and avoiding abusive behavior. (https://twitter.com/anacoqui/status/1154390417070264320) (She includes a CW for domestic violence discussion in the tweets.)

The #rwa19 hashtag on Twitter. Plenty of people are live tweeting panels. I even got a link to Sherry Thomas' entire speech from there.

Plus you get to see photos of the ENORMOUS venue, and all the parties we're missing out on. :D

Thank you for this!
