Writers Tricks of the Trade welcomes our Guest Tony Todaro, President of Greater Los Angeles Writers Group and the CEO of West Coast Writers Conferences. Tony will discuss the benefits of attending writer's conferences and belonging to writers groups for writers at all stages of their careers. Many writers who attend conferences have evolved to guest speakers or give workshops themselves, but there is always something to be learned. The next West Coast Writers Conference is "THE BIG STORY," February 20-22. The co-host of the Writers Tricks of the Trade Show, Morgan St. James, will be presenting a workshop for that conference and participate in two panels.

Hear about upcoming conferences in Alabama, Fl and Tx as states make a "Stand" to defend their children. Why are we having to do this? Well by now many of you have heard about one of the most pivotal issue facing this nation. The Common Core State Standards Initiative. Alsoo hear about the latest with Alabama's Governor Bentley's support for Tommy Bice
Hear perspectives on how to keep America the "Land of the Free and Home of the Brave". It starts with TRUTH.
Jefferson quoted in his Bill for Religious Freedom '...and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself; that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate,"--simply means truth always prevails over evil and error unless man interposes-- cut off-- free argument and debate.
The time for Conferences to educate people of the truth has come. In our schools today, there is so much taught and there is no debate allowed which makes a lot of untruths in Common Core teachings to become ingrained in the minds of students as facts. Hear about upcoming Conferences on Common Core and share it with friends and family. Also the new movie by Dinesh D'Souza has sparked a fire for people across the nation and the world to see that America is in fact a testimony to all of God's amazing grace for all nations. Come join us and open your eyes to new perspectives.
Hear perspectives with Mrs. Barbara Moore on what is going on in the fight against Common Core. Things will be heating up soon as this untested, abusive indoctrination process being shoved to children in schools are not sitting well with most parents. Hear about upcoming conferences so that you can find out more. We hope to have speakers from here and abroad to awaken America's sleeping parents about the mentality being pushed on their children. Learn all about it and share.
Stay informed! Tune in each Sunday at 5:30 p.m. CDT. Kori tells you who you missed, but shouldn't have, and who you don't want to miss.
Today's show is pre-recorded. Kori and Gabriela discuss an introvert's guide to attending conferences. There are some great tips in this episode!
Have you ever attended a conference? How about one outside your professional focus? Attending conferences can be a lot of fun and interest. Learn conference jargon, what to look for, what it’s going to cost, and what attending a different conference can mean for you.
People who are upset about the government and the systems that control our lives love to convene and complain about it. They even may organize a big rally and make speeches about it. If the cause really becomes popular, they'll get T- shirts, hats, and buttons printed about it. It's great that we know how to whip up sentiments among people and passionately voice our concerns. But these gatherings cost money. Room rental for meetings, sound equipment, chairs. Poster printing, T-shirt, hat and button printing. Bus, van or car rental to drive to the big gathering. Hotel room rental if it's in another city. And of course you have to buy new clothes if it's an out of town conference, you want to look your best. But who's getting paid for all this? People who are already in business, people who own buildings with meeting space, transportation companies, printing factories, hotels, restaurants, clothing stores. Usually the people who are getting paid are not the people protesting the problem. For all the money we spend to gather and talk about the problem, we could be putting together the money to fix the problem. So let's look at the issues we face, the money we spend to complain about it, and the money we could be spending to actually fix the problem.
