There are so many wonderful writing conferences going on all the time. Make sure to take the time to figure out which ones are best for you. Who are the presenters? What will be discussed? Are the topics pertinent to your writing, your genre, etc.? How much money are you willing to fork out, and is the conference worth the expense?
One can spend so much time attending conferences that he/she can get caught up in the social aspect and forget to write, which, by the way, is most important. If the writer doesn't have the material to present, then time and money are wasted. That is not to say, that networking isn't also important. And we all need the boost that comes from interacting with others who are also on a similar path.
Balance is everything! Happy conferencing.
