This weekend I will be attending one of my favorite annual events: The New Jersey Romance Writers’ Conference!
I’ve been going since 1989 and never miss this fantastic conference. It’s everything a conference should be. It includes great workshops, on everything from the craft of writing to business knowledge of the publishing industry; opportunities to meet with editors and agents; wonderful breakfast and lunch speakers; roundtables on timely topics for published authors; and a glittering awards ceremony.  The atmosphere is always upbeat and leaves you feeling that you can achieve your dreams!

But the best part, for me, is the time I get to network with fellow writers. Since writers usually work alone the camaraderie among our fellow writers is especially important.  I have met other romance writers who have become special friends at this conference and I get to catch up with others who live far away and don’t come to NJ often. I also get some quality time with my critique partners–something I cherish as we are friends as well as critique partners.

On Saturday, Oct. 22, the conference’s fantastic booksigning is open to the public and a portion of the proceeds is donated to NJ Literacy.  Many authors will be there so come join the fun!

With anticipation,

Roni Denholtz
