So you didn't get to go to RWA Nationals. That doesn't mean you can't virtually participate. Wipe those tears. It's time to gather around the Twitter feed. Stay tuned for the Golden Heart and RITA awards banquet tonight (Saturday night).
Here the link to RWA where the winners will be posted as they are announced.
And here's the Twitter feed to follow the fun (if you get lost look for #RWA10) and the RWA 10 Hash Album can be found here.
Remember to keep on an eye on BillsPro for 2010 conference audio specials. You can preview this year's RWA workshops and handouts here. Be sure to click on the workshop titles for the handout PDF.
