2017 Montezuma All-Iowa Writers Conference!

The Montezuma Writers Conference was fun too attended. I met new writers from out of town and from other states. And met some authors as well. Each hour an author talked up front about their writing or how they got published or how you can promote your work. I did write a few things. I thought all the authors had something interesting to say. They were funny too. I walked around and saw all the tables with books. I was just a little jealous because I want that really bad. I was to go to book events and have my own table with my book. But hopefully, it will happen too. Lunch was good too. I think they were subway sandwiches. The buns were huge. I couldn’t get my mouth around it, so I tore some of the bread out and ate it then ate the sandwich. It was really good. I think everybody was hungry because when the sliding doors to the kitchen counter opened everybody got up from their table and stood in line. I was hungry too.

These are the author’s that attended the conference.
