The Muse conference may be the first free online conference around. It's taking hold. I'll be presenting at a couple of others this year, too. PROMODAY and just finished a great week with the Catholic writers. Keep up with these kinds of free learning experiences by subscribing to my Sharing with Writers newsletter.

Best,
Carolyn
