â‚¬ Donâ€™t feel you are â€œwastingâ€ your conference experience if you donâ€™t have a manuscript ready to pitch. The ACFW conference is worth every penny of the conference fee simply for the wonderful continuing sessions, workshops and late night chats. Add in the incredible keynote speakers, not to mention food and entertainment, and youâ€™ll see that thereâ€™s much to be gained even if youâ€™re not at the pitching stage yet.
Of course, you may sign up for appointments with the professionals available whether you have a proposal or not. Make that time count by having questions prepared for the professionals. If you choose not to take appointments, you will also have an opportunity to ask your questions during the panel discussions. Itâ€™s win/win, no matter how you look at it!
