Pet Writing Conference Wrap-Up

Next to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the hottest (pet) ticket in New York City this past February was the first Business of Pet Writing Conference, held at the Radisson Martinique. With an international mix of pet writers, veterinarians, dog fanciers, animal behaviorists and other pet industry professionals, the conference has been lauded as a success. So much so, the conference is returning to the Big Apple for an “encore performance” on Saturday, February 6, 2010.

I was thrilled with this first conference. The feedback I’ve been getting has been in superlatives like "brilliant", "fabulous", and "fulfilling". We have a lot of people to thank for their participation, both on the sponsorship and presenter sides. It couldn’t have been better. I’m expecting next year’s conference to be triple in size.”

The conference hosted a myriad of respected professionals from both the publishing and pet industries. Seasoned and aspiring writers were given valuable information about how to effectively navigate the business of pet writing. In addition to the impressive schedule of group presentations throughout the day, editors and agents made time to meet with conference participants individually.

After seeing such enthusiasm at the pet writing conference, I'm looking forward to an even more successful event in 2010 and urge pet writers to sign up early. Furthermore, in 2010, there will be limited seating. Early bird registration will commence in June with a discount cost of $150.00 until September 1st. The price of the conference is $175.00.
