2012 Writer's Digest Conference: Coming Soon!

One of the most popular conferences for writers in the country is just around the corner: The Writer's Digest Conference on January 20-22 in New York City at the Sheraton New York Hotel.

First, there are the sessions in which writers who are serious about the business of their writing can learn everything they need to know about a variety of topics, including Writing About Yourself in the Digital Age, E-Publishing 101, Marketing the Promotionally-Challenged Author, and more!

Second, there's the connections you'll be able to make with other writers, editors, and literary agents. Anyone who's been to a writer's conference realizes the value in this networking time, though the Writer's Digest Conference always does a great job of getting everyone--attendees and speakers--mixed together throughout.

Finally, there's the BIG EVENT! No Writer's Digest Conference would be complete without their amazing Pitch Slams, in which writers can pitch agents face-to-face over a 3-hour period. There are currenly 70+ agents planning to listen to pitches, and that is what truly sets the Writer's Digest Conference apart.
