Interested in this conference.
Rich in poets it ain't but maybe we poets should think about why not?
This is a conference about making writing pay so why do we poets exclude ourselves from that? Sure we can blog or write a novel and make some money. Judge a competition or do some teaching? But why not make some money out of poetry? Why do we sell it so cheaply.
Walter Scott and Tennyson built or bought houses in the past on the back of sales from one poem!
Anyway more on this conference here (and the kind of skills the rest of the writing world are trading in) http://www.pikespeakwriters.com/.
