I don’t know the etiquette for this, but here are some things I’m doing now or in the near future:
I’ll be at Sleuthfest (March 3-6, 2011 at the Deerfield Beach Hilton in Deerfield Beach, Florida).
The following month, I’ll be at the Wisconsin Writer’s Institute (April 8-10 , 2011 in Madison).
I’ve also got a gig at one of Dean Smith’s workshops (Feb 24-27, 2011), teaching a short story class.
This is something I’ve done about 6 times, so it’s really a last vestige of my roots at Tekno. But the workshops are really fun. I have a blast doing them. Dean and I work really hard, but the writers who attend actually work harder.
I’m judging the final round of the Mystery category for the
Pikes Peak Writers Conference. It’s a great conference if you haven’t tried it, located in Colorado in the spring.
