Carrie McCullough, conference co-chair of SCWW 2010 Writers’ Conference, was quoted in an article, “Make the Most of Any Writing Event,” (Writer’s Digest, Writing Basics, 2011) as one of ten top writers’ conference organizers. These are her suggestions to conference goers to “Get in the Right Mindset” before participating in a writers’ conference. “Writers make two big mistakes at conferences. The first is taking it all too seriously. Some folks are so overwhelmed with being at the conference [that] they forget to enjoy, learn and laugh. On the last day I see some [attendees] close to tears because they missed the trees for the forest. However, the other big mistake is being too laid back and too comfortable and forgetting the goal of getting published. While there are cocktail times and plenty of opportunities to mingle, publishing is a business.”
