    [Conference] Get Published!

    Just wondering if anybody knows anything about this organization. They are hosting some sort of writers' conference in my area and I'm trying to decide if it's worthwhile. I don't want to throw any money away, and I *especially* don't want to get trapped in a room with a bunch of high-pressure salesmen, peddling services that I don't need.

    As near as I can tell from their Website, the two key organizers are named Jeremy Soldevilla from an organization called "Dystenium" and Lynn Kinnaman from a company called "Works by Design."

    Thanks in Advance.

    Once you've heard the truth, everything else is just cheap whiskey.

    Never heard of it. Seems to be a bit light on specifics; might be worth an email to them for clarification.

    It's only $59 to register? Seems pretty cheap. But then, they don't seem to be working with a big budget since their website is a wordpress page. Looks like they have real authors at least.

    I'm personally leery of "get published!" conferences sponsored by self-/vanity publishers.

    I hope justpat (Patrick of QueryTracker) will give us a report afterward.
