In the United States alone, there are more writers' conferences than theme parks.
Most are fun, informative, and worthwhile. And the experiences gained from attending conferences vary as widely as Disney World does from Six Flags, as Manhattan does from San Diego.
Each month we review a conference based upon the following criteria: Keynote Speakers, Faculty, Location, and Workshop Method (Round Table or Auditorium), Skill Level (who will benefit from this event), Cost, and the PLUS/MINUS KEY for an objective look at the good, bad, and the ugly.
