Several new conferences have been added that feature literary agents, including SCBWI Agent Day in Missouri, the online Nonfiction Writers Conference, the Colorado Christian Writers Conference, the Oklahoma Federation of Writers Conference, and the Editors Agents Writers conference in Maine (this one also features an editor, Carter Hasegawa of Candlewick Press). We also have five new retreats/workshops listed.
As many of you know, my home in Houston was flooded with over six feet of water following Hurricane Harvey. Along with the house, we lost everything downstairs and much of what was upstairs. Our furniture had been collected over the many years of our happily-ever-after, and I hated the idea of buying a whole house-full of new furniture. My husband and I both enjoy diy projects, so we are planning to refinish, repaint, re-upholster, and generally repair old furniture we had in storage. I’ve recently completed my first project, a wingback chair. If you’d like to see the nitty-gritty details, I’ve blogged about it with lots of pictures to show the process. I’ll be adding more soon.
