Covid-19 is changing the way that we have done things. One of the biggest changes is in group gatherings.
Yesterday, I attended my first online writer’s conference. Usually held in person in Arizona, the Desert Sleuth’s Conference was full of information. It was also free. I couldn’t pass up that deal.
They did a good job of everything, from their selection of presenters, topics, advertising, and making their audience feel included and valued.
For the foreseeable future, virtual meetings may be the way to go. So, I compiled this list of remaining conferences you might like to “attend”online this year. (I am sure if you research a bit on your own, you will be able to add to this list).
