It's no big secret that a lot of the social life at RWA Nationals centers around the hotel bar (even if you aren't a drinker, come hang out with a soda). As great as the hotel bar can be, sometimes you want to get out of the conference hotel and experience something a little different. Since RWA 15 is in New York City and I'm a New Yorker, I thought I'd throw together some recommendations for bars really close to the Marriott Marquis. Anything with a star is a personal recommendation. *Pony Bar - 45th & 10th (craft beer)
The countdown is officially on! In less than a week I'm going to be at RWA in San Antonio, so I'm starting to make all sorts of lists. Yesterday First Draught ran you through what to expect at the conference and answered some common questions about the RITAs, workshops, registration, and meals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nsidBFm1MA
A few helpful links we mentioned in yesterday's chat....
- Here's a list of all #RWA14 workshops. Don't forget that you can follow a certain track (craft, research, marketing, etc.) or pick and choose different kinds of workshops
- If you're interested in the literacy signing we mentioned, a list of authors is here. Remember, it's open to the public!
- Author and Editor appointments are closed for online sign up, but as Alexis mentioned you can snag spots on a first come, first served basis at the conference.
- This is the famous Erin Knightley packing video. She is a brilliant packer. Brilliant.
Also don't forget that you can always reach out to us on Twitter, and let us know if you're heading to San Antonio!
