All of this for FREE at home!

And, if you can’t make it during the conference, everything will be available online afterward.

Participating, asking questions, and leaving comments the day-of, however, allows you to

2. Ask our awesome Keynote Speaker Lisa Mangum live questions via Facebook
3. Find out who won the First Chapter Contest
4. Be eligible for awesome giveaways!

And you can watch everything in your pajamas!!!

You can post questions on this page, the author page, or on the Facebook Event (the link to the Facebook Event will only work if you are already a member of LDS Beta Readers - and if you aren't, what are you waiting for? We are super cool!)

  1. The workshop schedule looks great. And as I have to cancel my registration to Storytellers, this looks like a great alternative. Thanks to the organizers and instructors who have worked to hard to make this a success.

  2. Thank you! I will catch what I can live, but as I have a kids birthday party (an hour away!) I will watch on the replay as well. Thanks for organizing this.

  3. Make sure you click on the title of the class to access the video. Also remember videos are not available until after the correct hour, but after it is posted, it is posted permanently and you can return to it as much as you would like. Please make sure to comment on the videos if you have questions. Most authors will be watching with you and waiting eagerly for questions. :)

  4. Holy cow, the organizers put a ton of work in to this one. Laura--wow. Jenny--superb as always. And all the presenters. Thanks for the chance to participate. This was really cool.
