The Muse Online Conference

Want to attend a writers’ conference but don’t have a clue where the money’s coming from or how to schedule the time? Don’t throw in the towel, because The Muse Online Conference might be just what you’re looking for!

The conference is the brainchild of co-founders Lea Schizas and Carolyn Howard-Johnson and debuted in 2006, offering writers the opportunity to interact with peers and professionals in the writing business, while developing and enhancing their skills. All for free!

This year’s conference will be held October 13-19, and the selection of virtual workshops and real-time chats cover topics ranging from starting a writing career to marketing techniques, and everything else in between. So, you’re sure to find a session (or two) to fit your interests. In addition, attendees can participate in the Virtual Conference Hall, where they can ask questions in any or all of the workshop forum rooms. There’s even a farewell party on the last night of the conference!

I attended the conference for the first time in 2007, and although I couldn’t take the week off, I could easily return where I left off since it was online. I’m still benefiting from the quality information I received and couldn’t wait to sign up for this year’s event!

You’ll need to be quick about registering for the 2008 Muse Conference, because the deadline is September 1. Head over to:

Maybe we’ll ‘bump’ into each other in the Conference Hall!

Jill, I love having the Muse Conference called Lea's and my brainchild. Actually it was a nag. Lea kept saying she was going to do it and I kept nagging her to. Truly, she is the brains. I just love giving her a hand because it is such a great opportunity for starving authors.
