10 Reasons Jot Is One of My Favorite Things

Jot Writer’s Conference is one of my very favorite things. Why? Well, I have 10 reasons.

1. It’s free. No. Really. It costs nothing.

2. It’s one night. So you don’t have to take a day off work … unless you work at night. But you should do it. It’s only one night!

3. It’s at Baker Book House. It’s one of my favorite places in the world.

4. Zachary Bartels. He’s the author of Playing Saint, one of my favorite reads from last year. He’s speaking at Jot on inserting real life in fiction.

5. Amelia Rhodes. She’s one of my besties. She’s also the author of Isn’t It Time for a Coffee Break and the creator of Pray A to Z.  She’s going to present on how to make time to write.

6. Tim Beals! He’s the owner of Credo Communications, my literary agency.

7. Kenneth Kraegel, author of King Arthur’s Very Great Grandson and the soon to be released Song of Delphine. He’s my favorite storybook author and illustrator. Also, he’s a nice guy.

8. Writers, writers everywhere! It’s a hangout for people who understand the writing life. It’s fabulous.

9. Icons Coffee. They seriously have the best chai in all the world.

10. The Weaklings. They’re the dudes who plan and put on the conference. Andy, Josh, Bob, Thomas, and Matthew are cool and fun and like the 5 little brothers I never had. Even though they’re all way taller than I am.

If you write or think you might like to, you should think about coming to Jot. It’s free…you have nothing to lose but a few hours of your time. If you don’t live in the area, I believe they’ll have a livestream set up. So mark March 13, 2015 on your calendar. Show up at 7pm (or a little before). I’ll be at the registration table, so make sure you say “hey” to me.

Oh! And after the 4 presentations, I’ll be leading a workshop on blogging. So, there’s that!

This is me, speaking at Jot last March. I'm not kidding, it's a highlight of my career.

  1. Thanks for the kind words, Susie! I’m so glad you are participating again. We couldn’t do Jot without you.


  2. NOICE! See you there! I’m looking forward to it. Have you met Tim Beals before? I haven’t, and while I hear that he’s a really nice guy, I have a nagging and irrational fear that it will be like when Jimmy met the owner of PlayTone Records on That Thing You Do… XD
