I try to attend at least one writing conference a year. SCBWI offers great national and regional conferences throughout the year. Whether you are a writer or an aspiring writer, attending writing conferences will be well worth your time.
I participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), too. You can find me on the site by searching for christophermillay.
Midwest Writers Workshop 2014 is where I met my tribe of Noodle Friends: Amanda, Christine, Val, & Victor (LOVE you guys!). It’s also where I met my secret group of T-Rex writers in 2016. We’re having a blast critiquing, celebrating, and supporting each other.
If you’re attending any of these events, make sure to find me! I’d love to meet you.

November 2016: National Novel Writing Month. I was SO excited about NaNoWriMo in 2016! I got to work with students at our local Jr. High School, in collaboration with teachers and staff at the local Alexandrian Library! I didn’t pull off a NaNoWriMo win, but helping the students work through writing a novel was definitely worth it. Fourteen students met their word count goals as part of the Young Writers Program!
