Notice how except for #2, there aren't any writers conferences? That's because I'm still starting out, and haven't yet gotten many invitations to participate in them. I love to travel, and I like going to conferences, so if you'd like me to attend one near you, have the conference coordinators contact me. It's fairly standard that the writers conference will pay for airfare and hotel for the agent, as this helps keep down travel costs immensely. I'd love to do any conference in the US, as well as any international ones.
