Dog aficionados around the world know that New York in February is
synonymous with the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. However, true aficionados know that the festivities
begin before the first dog takes the stage. On February 12th, pet writing enthusiasts from all over the
world will gather at The Business of Pet Writing Conference in the Hotel Pennsylvania's PennTop Ballroom,
and rub elbows with the premiere people in the publishing and pet industries.
Pet writers need to hone their skills more than ever before. The economic downturn, coupled with stiff literary
competition, incentivizes pet writers to get an edge. That edge is found in attending The Business of Pet Writing
Conference where pet writers have the chance to learn from the best in the business to make valuable contacts.
In February 2011, The Business of Pet Writing Conference will offer seminars and workshops that help pet writers:
increase their visibility with better blogging; learn more about narrative and creative nonfiction; build their
freelance portfolio with newspaper, magazine and blog clips; create successful book marketing campaigns; promote
their entrepreneurial spirit and more.
In addition to the core educational program, The Business of Pet Writing Conference participants have the opportunity
to meet with top agents and editors on an individualized basis. Past attendees have utilized these
sessions to pitch their ideas, with many receiving magazine assignments and book deals as a result.
The Business of Pet Writing Conference also welcomes a variety of notable veterinarians and prominent representatives
from the pet food industry who are eager to assist pet writers with their research, book and article ideas, contact
information, additional educational opportunities, and access to materials (studies, reports, press releases,
