How to Get the Most Out of the Live Chats:

  1. About 30 minutes before a scheduled live event, a window will be posted
  in a blog post on the main WriteOnCon site.

  2. You can log in, but it’s not required to participate or ask a question.

  3. Each of the live chats has an assigned topic, and one of the WriteOnCon
  girls will be moderating.

  4. Questions can be submitted any time once the live chat window opens.

  5. Questions need to be asked ONLY ONCE. You won’t see your comment come
  through, but on our end, the comments are visible and we have people
  behind-the-scenes putting them on hold.

  6. The moderator of the chat will put through as many questions as possible
  for the WriteOnCon faculty member(s) to answer. We really try to put forth
  the questions as fast as possible, from as many of you as possible.

  7. Pitching/Querying is not appropriate for live chats.

  8. If you cannot attend one of the live events, a transcript will be
  available afterward, in the same blog post as the live window.
