All writers need people who believe in them and nurture them. Conferences are the best place to make those connections. To give back to the writing community we accept as many invitations as we possibly can to attend conferences - giving talks, teaching workshops, and listening to pitches in one-on-ones. After all, three-quarters of our clients met us first at a writers conference.

A bestselling writing documentary by filmmaker Rusty Nixon filmed at The Surrey International Writers Conference, "Scribes" gives you the inside scoop on what it takes to break into publishing and become a professional writer. It features writers conference workshops, keynote speeches, and one-on-one interviews with powerhouse agents and editors, producers, and publishers, as well as some of today's bestselling authors, including: Terry Brooks, Elizabeth Engstrom, Diana Gabaldon, Anne Perry, John Saul, Michael Slade, Jack Whyte, and more, including our own Cricket. It's a humorous, honest, and sometimes painful look at the writing industry.
Rusty has graciously made "Scribes," the first DVD selected for WD's Book-of-the-Month Club, available for you. Sit back, relax, and learn. Watch it below.
