Twitter Tuesday~Submission Call, Conferences, Agent Advice

I spent a lot more time on Twitter last week. It helps me when I have writer's block, which I suffered from a little last week. Check out this interview with one of the authors that will be attending the Writer's Digest Winter Conference:

My friend Julie shared this link of agent Joanna Volpe talking about her views on realistic teen dialogue. If you write young adult or middle grade you don't want to miss this:

This is a fun one by Christi about staying organized while writing:
@ChristiWhitney How do you organize all those little details that pop up during writing. Leave me a comment! Death By Post-It Notes http://t.co/sG4wFSZ

Do you have a great Christmas story? If so check out agent Marisa Corvisiero's call for submissions:

Even with all those I bet there are at least a few great tweets I missed. Feel free to leave me a comment if you know of one!

  1. Thanks Heather for all the great information. There is a lot happening in publishing. Isn't it exciting?

    I love a good Christmas story, but I don't have a stand alone. I do have a fun Christmas chapter in my ms. I wish I could use it.

    Are you going to the SCBWI Winter conference in NYC in January?
    IF so, I'll be there Too! It would be great to meet...

  4. It is exciting Michael! I'm not sure yet if I'm going to make it to the SCBWI Winter conference. NY is a long way away and there are a few conferences here on the west coast that I want to attend this winter. I hope to make it though. That would be great to meet you!
