Jot Update | Cool Things are Happening

jotThings are shaping up well for Jot. We have confirmed our lineup, and as soon as I get a chance, I’ll be updating the Jot site to reflect the changes. Until then, you get advance notice!

We’re still working on the exact times when each session will start, but here are the basics:

Andrew Rogers (Zondervan Marketing) – Book Proposals

Bob Evenhouse (Indie Author) – The Writing Life

Josh Mosey (Blogger) – Flash Fiction: A How-To

Matthew Landrum (Poetry Editor of Structo Magazine) – Eyes and Ears: Finding Your Material/Your Material Finding You.

Q & A with Chad R. Allen (Editorial Director of Baker Books) – Stay tuned for how to submit your questions.

We are super excited to have Chad Allen on board for the evening events. One thing that writers conference attendees hope to see is an editor from a major publishing house. Chad certainly fits the bill. His blog is full of excellent information about the publishing process and his new series of posts on crafting book proposals is a must-read for any hopeful author.

But the good new doesn’t stop there.

Baker Book House and Icons Coffee have both donated gift cards that we’ll be giving away at the conference. Simply drop your name into the bucket when you arrive and you might win! And if that isn’t enough, enjoy this coupon from Icons Coffee, good for the night of the conference only.

Obviously, it is a better deal to get a free drink than a dollar off, so why not bring a friend to Jot?

According to the Facebook Event Page for Baker Book House, 22 people have committed to attending Jot, and 11 people are still considering the matter. That’s pretty cool! If you are thinking about attending, make sure that you let us know so we can make the right number of handouts and such.

Thanks to everyone who has encouraged us so far. We are hoping for a good night and a good turnout! Maybe we’ll see you there!
