DFWCON Postlude

May 4, 2014


I am sitting in my comfy chair in my office, laptop in lap. Feeling a little melancholy, happy, depressed. I’ve got a glass of whiskey next to me. It’s dark in here, and I am really tired. It’s Sunday evening. It’s this way every year. Our DFWCON conference committee works pretty incessantly all year long […]


April 26, 2014


Man, has it already been another year? Good times. This is DFWCON 7 and from what I have seen so far from all our meetings and program decisions in the background (you will never know how many arguments and discussions we have over the most minuscule details!) this year looks to be one of the […]


April 28, 2013


Well it’s fast approaching. Only one week away.   To be honest, I’ve taken more of a backseat this year, for a few reasons. 1. I want to let others step up and put their stamp on the conference. 2) I needed a break. After working on the DFWCON for years, man it takes its […]

The Quiet Time

August 17, 2011


We’re working on the conference, and for now, we’ve entered the quiet time. This is the time where all the volunteers are gathering information, getting speakers, signing up VIPs, getting information for vendors, prizes, etc.  It’s kind of frustrating. As the director, I need to keep up moving in a forward direction, but during this […]

What an Agent Should and Shouldn’t do at a Conference

June 23, 2011


Okay, we’ve all seen the “what to do at a writers’ conference” written by literary agents for writers. We need to turn this around and list what the agent should and shouldn’t do at a conference.
