West Coast Writers Conferences Logo and Type

The WC2 roster currently consists of over 260 literary agents, scouts, publishers, editors, bestselling authors, industry veterans, and educators who have appeared at West Coast Writers Conferences, Special Speaker Events, and Masters Workshops. While some have become perennial favorites, we strive to bring new and learned voices to each and every new program. A final roster for the next conference will be online 30 days before the event.
