Arrive early. Give yourself plenty of time to find where everything is. (A map of the building will be available at the check-in desk.)
Review your registration folder. The folder you receive at the check-in desk will contain a complete schedule, along with other important information.
Consider editor/agent appointments. Not sure if you’re ready to meet with an editor or agent? That’s okay. These appointments are for writers who have material ready to submit. However, if you do have a manuscript ready to be considered for publication, study each editor and agent, along with the houses they represent. Visit their websites to learn what they're looking for. If what you’ve written matches their needs, sign up for an appointment when you register. Even if you’re nervous, the editorial rep will understand. All of us writers have been in that situation at one point or another in our careers. Be sure to check out Dr. Dennis E. Hensley's tips on making the most of your 15-minute appointment.
