RTW -- Conferences I'd Love to Attend

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:


What book and/or writing conference would you love to go to?
 

I'd love to go to just about any of them! BEA is probably the one I want to go to the most. So many amazing people from the industry are there and the ARCs! SCBWI is another big one because it's all about children's books, including YA. Basically I'd love to go anywhere that large numbers of book lovers gather.

The one I would give anything to go to, though, would be ComicCon. Castle has been there, Doctor Who has been there, Torchwood has been there. It sounds like a nerd's paradise.

I've read that the swag potential at BEA is worth the trip! Besides all the lovely ARCs, it would be great to be among all those industry pros.

ComicCon would be fun. Of course, *the* Doctor Who conference/convention to attend is GallifreyOne in LA, usually every February. I've never been, but it always sounds like a great time. :)

I would love to go to any of these - especially SCBWI! But being in Europe making the trip over is just way to expensive for a poor uni student.
