Writer's Digest Events

For 100 years, Writer's Digest has been the go-to resource for all things writing and getting published. With our magazines, books, online education, and a bevy of online resources and services—we've never been more accessible to more writers across all genres and experience levels.

We are striving to make our conferences more accessible! Whether you're on the East or West Coast, or living in the Midwest, there's a Writer's Digest event ready to meet your needs.

For 2020, our Writer's Digest Annual Conference (usually based in New York City) will be virtual on November 5-7. It will offer an incredible lineup of presenters and workshops, in addition to the ever popular Pitch Slam event. Bookmark the site for the latest updates and registration announcements.

Writer's Digest Novel Writing Conference

If you're looking to take your novel to another level, plan to join us for our annual Writer's Digest Novel Writing Conference (usually held in California) on November 5-7. Featuring sessions from bestselling writers, agents, and editors, you'll hone your craft, learn how to create three-dimensional characters, sharpen your genre-specific skills and prepare for what comes after you've written your novel.

Writer's Digest Annual Conference

Since both events are happening at the same time and virtually this year, writers have an unprecedented opportunity this year to attend both from anywhere that offers internet access. Check out the All Access Pass for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get the full Writer's Digest experience. Register now.

Whatever your writing goals may be, Writer's Digest is here to support you. We hope to see you in November at one (or both) of our can't miss events!
