2023 Writing Conferences
Casual conversations with other authors and agents as dinner companions are just a few ways professional conferences provide value for indie authors. Workshops and sessions give you the tools to push your writing skills forward and help you build the confidence to pitch manuscripts.
And, if you’re ready, you’ll find speaking with agents in person is much more effective than a formal query letter. In our world of Zoom calls, emails, and QueryTracker, nothing beats face-to-face conversations to build the connections you need for a successful writing career.
Need more reasons to invest? Whether you choose a comprehensive writing conference or one that is genre specific, you can be assured that you’ll find the following:
- Creative rejuvenation.
- Personal growth.
- Ways to improve your writing.
- Relevant industry insights.
- Inspiration and motivation.
- Connection with agents, publishers, and editors.
- Discover a supportive community.
Plenty of conferences, workshops, and retreats are left in 2023. Get started with our list, or visit the Association of Writers & Writing Programs conference directory to find one close to you.
