We WAM!ed it ourselves...

Okay, we promised we were going to write about this over the weekend, but hell, we're a bunch of busy ladies... On Saturday we attended the Women, Action and the Media New York mini-conference.

We attended the WAM! conference in Boston last year, but this year WAM! (which started in 2004 as a project of the Center for New Words) postponed the 2010 event as they work towards transforming into an independent national non-profit organization. Instead, there were smaller "WAM! It Yourself" mini conferences in Boston, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Antonio, and of course, New York.

It was a lot of fun, very informative and definitely worth way more than $12 registration fee. There were a lot of awesome women presenting and moderating workshops and discussions including topics such as social media, investigative journalism and getting published.

We even won something in the raffle, which is amazing, because we never win anything. We won a copy of the book King Kong Theory by Virginie Despentes. Expect a review soon! (Okay probably not soon, since we're so busy, but at some point we promise we will review it.)

We would definitely recommend you get involved with WAM! and check out what local events are happening near you!
