Looking for writing conference best practices? You’ve come to the right place.
Happy Fourth of July, everyone! We hope you and your loved ones are celebrating our wonderful freedom in the traditional way with explosions, grilled meat, and homemade ice cream.
While all of us here at Crosshair Press are taking a break from the normal rigors of small business life, we thought we’d let you know about something awesome that’s coming!
Last year, we launched a series of blog posts with tips, helpful hints, and loads of encouragement leading up to the Realm Makers Conference. Well, we had so much fun (and everyone liked it so much), we’re going to do it again.
Return to Realm Makers
Katie and the Amys have been to many conferences throughout their careers as writers and publishers. We’ve been on both sides of the pitching table, and we’ve accumulated a list of conference best practices. So we want to help you learn from our experiences.
Starting Saturday, be on the lookout for the new Road to Realm Makers series. We’ll feature fun and informative tips for travel, recommendations for sharing a room, conference best practices, and much more. So whether you’re attending Realm Makers this year (or if you’ll be going to a different conference later on), you’ll definitely want to tune in.
But for now, check out the previous Road to Realm Makers posts, and then watch our Facebook page, our Twitter feed, and our blog for new installments starting Saturday. If we don’t see you at Realm Makers, let us know which conferences you will be attending. Maybe we can see you there!

Note: This was supposed to be about 700 words. There is no way, my friends. No way that’s happening. In fact, this will probably my closest attempt to publishing a full-length novel. I hope you enjoy. (Feat. photo credit: Gretchen Kuykendall Engel) When I mention Realm Makers to folks, they always ask me what it Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailGoogleLike this:Like Loading...
