Diane Lefer's Writing Conference From Hell

Diane Lefer's Writing Conference From Hell

From Diane Lefer:
I think it was Muriel Rukeyser who said offer your work to publishers. A writer must never submit. Never never never submit. 
Ms. Lefer gives us a funny, whirlwind account of her writing conference from hell. At one point she was trying to "get people to explore the emotions of their characters". She writes:
“I can’t do that,” said one woman, “All of my characters are dogs.” 

“Don’t your dogs have personalities?” 

“Oh, no,” she said. “They’ve all passed away.”
