Get Off My Lawn Con

I love WriteOnCon! I had a tremendous time there last summer. But it's only for YA, MG, PB, and NA writers. You know, those guys with the cute initials to describe them. 

I also write Adult. And I won't say I felt excluded, because I do use WriteOn, but it would be very nice for adult writers to have a place too.

So Get Off My Lawn Con was born. (Thanks to Janet Wrenn for the name.) More formally we are Literary Legals. Follow the hashtag #GetOffMyLawnCon for more info and updates.

There you will be able to introduce yourself, put up your query for feedback, enter your first 250 words. You can make friends and influence people.

I want to thank M. A. Nicholson for her technical expertise and setting up the forum! I also want to thank Diana Sousa for helping with the artwork!

This site is brand-spanking new. There will be glitches. Everything is not completed or perfect yet, but I figured it's better to get started imperfectly than to tinker forever.

Please keep this site positive. It's not a site for writers who were left out of a bigger con; it's a site for a special group of talented people. If you have any trouble with negative comments or snarkiness, please message me or another site administrator before reacting. Let us handle it.

That said, I hope you all enjoy, and we'll see what surprises we can whip up! Follow the hashtag #GetOffMyLawnCon.

Without further ado, here is the link:
