Spring Fling Conference Was Great!

of Spring Fling 2012
The Chicago North RWA Spring Fling 2012 Writers' Conference went off fabulously! The quality of the Chicago Mariott NW venue was superb, in looks and service, with the added bonus of being only 20 minutes away for me!

Lots of great workshops, terrific featured speakers, and many chances to network. Also, some free books from featured speakers, a tempting array of books to purchase in the bookstore and at the book signing. Of course, I came home with a bunch for my TBR pile, which is quite large as it is.

The committee did a terrific job putting this quality conference together. I'm hoping the same people step up to the plate to volunteer next time.

  1. Price is another important benefit of purchasing E-books. Most formats are less expensive to produce, so they cost less to purchase than many printed books, including paperbacks. You may even find a few free E-books to download while you are not very likely to find many free books at the bookstore.

  2. That's great! I enjoyed looking at your photos on facebook. Chicago is a wonderful city. I hope you got to enjoy a bit of it too!

  3. I like the big book cover display!

  4. The rolling banner of book covers is courtesy of Amazon! Nice when they do the work for me.

  5. I'm glad to hear that you had a good time. Really have to find a way to get to one of those conferences. :-/
