Entering contests is one of the best ways to get your work noticed, even if you don't win.
The 2015 Rivers of Ink Conference has come and gone. Attendance was down from last year, but everyone agreed the conference was better than ever. One of the suggestions we could implement immediately was a new Facebook group, Rivers of Ink Conference. Head there now to join!
