I am so glad I went: I attended 4 breakout sessions as well as the 3 keynotes and each one was instructive and engaging. The Grammar Gals were hilarious and had a ton of resources. The session on the roles of the writer/agent/editor/publisher was fascinating, and questions from the floor helped to move the topic into deeper levels–a well-moderated panel! I moderated the one on genre fiction, and was very happy I did not run out of questions–and again, questions from the floor were very perceptive. The panel on YA, like the others, was really good, too. AND–I managed to take a tour of the Alberta Legislative Assembly Building before coming home. As my screenplay deals partially with Alberta politics, it was wonderful to be in the building to get a sense of the setting.
