Online events are everywhere these days. Many authors, including myself, have participated in them with great success. While we grow weary of staying home and social distancing, the online community has provided an escape from isolation and kept people connected. I wanted to highlight a few reasons to get involved, if you haven't already, and remind those who have, why they should keep attending.
2. Virtual events have paved a way behind the scenes that has allowed greater understanding and access to authors. In particular, I've noticed more events involving literary agents who are trying to shed more light on the business of writing--an important aspect for every writer who wants to get published.
3. Events have become more accessible, no matter where you live. Interested in Thrillerfest? Malice Domestic? These events, and so many more, are remaining virtual in 2021, giving all of us the opportunity to join from the comforts of our homes. Why not take advantage of the one you've always dreamed of attending? The costs are a fraction of what they normally are and they're still boasting a killer line-up.
Are you looking forward to any virtual events in 2021? Let's hear about it!
