Of course I do not have a lot of money but I want to know if writing conferences are worth it. It will be about 250$ for the day and as I work off of minimum wage this is a large amount for me. Are they worth it? Have any of you gone to the ontario writers conference as that was the one I was looking to go to. If these are a waste of time... how do you network to find fellow writers that you can chat with? I don't have any writesr in my life and would really love to chat with some people to find out how they write/ think/ create their work. How did you start meeting writing buddies lol? And what is your best way of teaching, of course practicing, but anything else that is a great cheap way to enhance your writing that you've found, a good blog? If you can help out thank you very much, I've been writing for a while but only recently have I started to realize that I might want to take this more seriously now that I'm out of school.
