Sleuthing at Sleuthfest by Debra H. Goldstein
When I was a kid, my parents encouraged me to attend youth group, leadership and other educational conferences. I loved them because invariably these gatherings enhanced my knowledge base and provided me an opportunity to meet new people. The same proved true during my legal career and now as a writer.
Writing conferences technically are divided into two groups: those that are fan based and those that are craft oriented. For me, participating in panels and talking to other writers and fans results in any differences blending. Recently, I attended Sleuthfest in Florida. There, I had the opportunity to moderate a panel, be a panelist, interact with many writers and readers, and become acquainted with members of the Guppy chapter who’ve merely been names on a List Serv. So, here’s a bit of my “Sleuthing at Sleuthfest:”
