Natalie Sharpston earns kudos at her first writers conference

Natalie Sharpston is a writer who has been an encouragement to me since I stepped back onto the writing trail last year. She was the first subscriber to Darla Writes.

Last weekend she attended her first writers conference, and after a week of fabulous posts detailing her experience and sharing what she learned, Natalie gave us the best news of all: Her work had been recognized and earned awards in the conference’s writing competitions.

Congratulations, Natalie!

If you will be attending a writer’s conference and want a glimpse of what to expect, then read about Natalie’s experience. She details her preparation for the conference, how she handled sitting through a critique of her work, her one-on-one meeting with literary agent Rachelle Gardner, and more highlights of the weekend.
