Networking in SF Bay Area: Creating Change Natl LGBTQ Conference and SF Writers Conferences!

Had an amazing time attending two conferences in San Francisco this February– Creating Change 2023 which ran Feb 17-21, organized by the National LGBTQ Task Force, and the San Francisco Writers Conference (Feb 15-18, 2023). It was amazing going back and forth between the two venues, from workshops on publishing to panels on Education as Radical Activism. I was struck by the impressive integration of BIPOC issues and attendees in the Creating Change program, with much less such representation at the other conference. But the workshops at the SF Writers Conference were really incredible and inspiring for writing of all genres and interdisciplinary work, as well as extensive information on indy publishing and indy editors!
