Writing Conferences

WRITING CONFERENCES
Many writing conferences and workshops can be found by typing in “writing conference” and a particular state into a Google search. Many conferences are ‘on hiatus’ so it is best to call and determine its status before making plans. However I found the following which is a nice one stop search location:

Shaw Guides
http://writing.shawguides.com/ and click Writers Conferences and Workshops
You can type in the site’s search box for specific locations such as “Pittsburgh, PA” to limit findings.

Some select examples below:

Pennwriters
2010 Conference: May 14 to 16 at the Best Western Eden Resort in Lancaster PA
http://www.pennwriters.com/

WV Writers annual Summer Conference
June 11-13, 2010 at Cedar Lakes Conference Center near Ripley, WV.
http://www.wvwriters.org/conference.html

Antioch Writers Workshop
July

Central Ohio Fiction Writers
September
http://www.cofw.org/conference.html

However, it should be noted that many small but excellent conferences are not found on the Internet since many organizations host conferences locally for members but are gradually expanding. Case in point:

The Write-On Writers Conference

Coshocton, OH, held in Spring
Contact: Sharon Mooney (740) 623-8348 sfmooney@parakrisis.com


Remember to network with others about conferences. Try to distribute contact information and dates through flyers you picked up at the last conference. Use e-mail, telephone calls, and libraries.

  1. Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
