I mailed a query letter and manuscript to The Atlantic Monthly on eldercare. Wish me luck. I enrolled in the Triangle Area Freelancers conference this weekend. This is a new group for me. I formerly was a member of the North Carolina Writers Network and am considering becoming a member of the Independent Communicators Alliance. ICA has a program next week on using social networking sites as a marketing tools. There are lots of writers clubs online, and we have more than our share in NC. I guess it’s like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it.
