Conferences

We believe conferences are one of the best ways for writers to meet agents and editors and get real-time feedback on their book proposals. We attend and support a number of conferences each year and encourage aspiring and previously published authors to attend a writers conference at least once during the year to (a) gain professional opinions on their idea(s), (b) learn to take critiques from various industry representatives, and (c) understand and work with the publishing industry rather than trying to guess or go around those who are making decisions about what’s getting published.

The following conferences are ones we recommend (a) because we know the staff of each and (b) believe they are among the best conferences for writers to mature and improve their writing craft and connect with publishing professionals who are in a position to help them. We have seen the return upon investments when writers connect with editors, agents, and conference attendees as a new or previously published author.
