Writers’ Conferences: Learn, Network and … Learn!

For writers, it isn’t very often you are able to gather to celebrate your hard work and learn how to improve it with your peers.  Throughout the year, writers’ conferences are held throughout the U.S., Canada and abroad at which you can attend workshops, network with industry professionals and fellow writers, and learn, learn, learn! Conferences can also help your book marketing and book publicity efforts as they are another way to spread the word about your book.

There is a conference for every writer! A good place to start searching for the right conference for you is The Association of Writers and Writing Programs’ website.  On the site you can search through more than 550 conferences around the globe and based on location and other variables.

Other resources are available like Writer’s Digest magazine that features a list of upcoming conferences and descriptions and prices of each.

Even doing a simple Google search for conferences can be helpful, but be mindful of registration dates.  Registering early can be very helpful when going to conferences.  Early registrations usually save you money.

Some conferences can b expensive, but many offer scholarships to help you attend with little to no cost. Again, be mindful of deadlines for scholarships as they can be earlier than normal registration.

A few examples:

This November, the North Carolina Writers’ Network is hosting a conference with scholarships offered.  The conference is being held November 15-17 and the deadline to apply for a scholarship is October 25.

Abroad, the Paris Cafe Writing group is hosting a conference on November 17- 23 with minimal space available but many more options throughout the year.

In December, NYC is the location of New York Pitch Conference that is offering an early application fee before December 7.  This conference is perfect for a wide array of fiction writers.
