Off to Portland!

18 September 2008

I’m leaving today on a 7:30 a.m. flight to Portland, Oregon, where I’ll attend the annual educational symposium of the Garden Writers Association. I’ve been going to these conferences every year since 1989 (I think I’ve missed three in 20 years) and even though I no longer make my living by writing and have never been a gardener, I continue to go. (I started attending when I worked in PR at the Missouri Botanical Garden.)

At the conferences, I see old friends and make new ones and I get an inside (sometimes VIP) look at most fabulous horticultural sites of the host city. And, of course, I have loads of fun. I confess: I’m a conference junkie.

This year, I have another role at the symposium. After 20 years of listening to talks, I’m actually giving one. It’s on organizing your writing business. I’m excited and honored to be included in the program.

I return on Tuesday night and hope to do some blogging from the road.
