Art Taylor

Nice round-up here, Lori! And I still need to check out more fully the plans for Murder and Mayhem in Chicago!

Paula Gail Benson

Lori, your class at the Yale Writers' Workshop was a phenomenal experience. So happy to hear about the Murder and Mayhem coming to Chicago. Best wishes with all your workshops and your writing!


Thanks, Art! It's going to be a fun day, if you're in the Chitown area!


Thanks, Paula! I really enjoyed your recap of it. I think you may talk a few people into going!

Shannon Baker

Thanks for the mention of Colorado Gold! I haven't missed a con there in over 20 years. They taught me to write and, like you with Ball State, I get to be on the faculty now.

Karen Duvall

The Colorado Gold Conference is the best conference in the country, in my opinion. Also, I need to clarify that pitch appointments with agents and editors at this conference is FREE with your registration, so you do NOT have to pay extra. You just need to choose who you want to pitch to when you register. There are agent/editor critique workshops that do cost extra, but those are writing workshops, not pitches.

Charlaine Harris

The greatest things about being on panels or teaching at conferences is that you get so charged up from talking to writers-in-the-making.


Shannon, I haven't been but I'm going next year, I believe. Can't wait!


Kathy--oops. Thanks for the correction. NOTED!


Charlaine-- I agree! I still get charged up from talking to other writers at all stages. Some of my Yale students had such impressively ambitious stories planned, it made me want to be a little better.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

So great! (I love Peter Abrahams, too..)

Yale! Milwaukee! I'd love to go... And Colorado Gold--wow. That sound great, too. Thank you for the scoop.

ANd see you at BOuchercon!

Elaine Viets

Thanks for an effective run-down, Lori. You nailed it.


Hank---shhhhh, that's his super secret LITERARY name. :)
