I’m just back from the Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc annual conference, and had a ball! It will take me a few days to get caught up but I wanted to post pictures and give some shout-0uts about the great folks and speakers–including the furry ones.
Thanks to the officers and committee chairs and volunteers that made the conference possible. President Dan Case, conference chair (and new president!) Linda Apple, the contest team of Nita Beshear and Maria Veres, Gloria Teague the secretary, treasurer Barbara Shepherd and and publicity director Jen Nipps.
There were three to four sessions scheduled each hour, and that made it difficult to decide which session to attend (and miss other great speakers). This year I was honored to be a speaker and we had a fun session on Friday with media training, and Saturday the Ebook DIY was well attended.
I first met Liz and Steve Berry at Thrillerfest when he was the co-president and worked as a volunteer for Liz–she’s the executive director. So I was thrilled that Steve was this year’s keynote speaker–inspiring!–and Liz gave a great talk on marketing.
