All writers need people who believe in them and nurture them. We feel conferences are the best place to make those connections face-to-face. As one writer enthusiastically replied when asked how he liked his first writers conference, "I found my people!"
We accept as many invitations as we possibly can to attend conferences so we can give back to the writing community - giving talks, teaching workshops, and listening to pitches in one-on-ones. We meet amazing people, but also, we've met nearly 80% of our clients at a writers conference.

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.
