WriteOnCon—Will you virtually be there?

So Tuesday kicks off the amazing, free, online writing conference by the geniuses Elana Johnson, Casey McCormick, Lisa and Laura Roecker, Shannon Messenger, and Jamie Harrington!

In the event you haven't heard of it, it's a free conference complete with agents, editors, and authors, with critiques, great discussions, and all sorts of useful information.
