Friday, writers will get a chance to have their work reviewed by agents and publishers in a series of intensive round table discussions. Saturday will be filled with keynote speakers, guests, and workshops and Sunday will focus primarily on self-publishing and marketing; what it takes to succeed in today’s publishing industry.
Writers at any stage of their career and from anywhere in the world are encouraged to attend. Your registration includes all meals, workshops, pitch sessions, intensive round table discussions, panels, guest speakers, contests, and networking opportunities. We’ve really packed as much value as we can into one weekend!
Keynote speakers will include Charlie Angus of the NDP, The Book Doctors, Deborah Dundas of the Toronto Star, author Michele “Wojo” Wojciechowski, Brian Henry of The Quick Brown Fox writers’ blog, and authors Andrew Pyper and Nick Cutter. In addition to such insightful voices, there will also be several publishing houses and writers agencies in attendance, including ChiZine Press, Mirror World Publishing, Walkerville Publishing, and The Rights Factory Agency, among others.
Writers will get the opportunity to network, receive feedback on their work, improve their writing skills, learn more about the publishing and self-publishing industry as well as get the chance to enter writing contests and pitch their work before industry professionals. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a successful writer, this conference is your chance to hone your craft and make connections in the industry.
We want you to succeed. We are every writer’s champion. We have something for attendees just learning how to start writing a book or finishing that book. Whether you’re going for the traditional route of the big name publishers, placing with an independent house, going hybrid, self-publishing, or choosing e-book-only distribution we will try to have as much information as we can muster to help you on your way. Don’t miss this opportunity!
