My schedule for LTUE

Life The Universe and Everything is Utah’s big writing symposium. It is excellent. If you are an aspiring writer, and you can get to Provo, you need to go. Compared to other events of this type it is super cheap for participants. I want to say it is like $30. This isn’t a fluffy fan event with people in costumes, it is all writing, business, nuts and bolts, how to get stuff done, professional advice all the time.

EDIT: BUT FIRST YOU NEED TO ASK YOURSELF, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO END PUPPY RELATED SADNESS TODAY?!

Okay, now here is the schedule:

  1. Thanks for the reminder, I’ll undoubtedly see you there.

  2. Thank you–I hadn’t heard of this con before. I’ll be there, lurking in the back rows the same way I lurk on blogs …

  3. Wow. That’s hard to read.

  4. I’m with Alexander Omega. That is really hard to read. One name stands out though. In bold face. It’s David Farland. Why did you bold face David Farland? (Made you look.)

  5. It looks like there was a formatting error in posting this one…

  6. Any chance of seeing video of your panels posted here afterwards? I’d especially like to hear your “How To Write Page-Turning Action” seminar.
