West Coast Writers Conferences (WC2)
is committed to providing writers of all genres and levels with
information, education and consultation in the craft and business
of writing. Each event features educators, industry professionals,
agents, publishers and experts in various disciplines.
There are several advantages to attending
a WC2 conference:
Curriculum First. Each conference is tailored to benefit
the greatest number of writers / attendees, regardless of the
topic. An event that takes a "shotgun" approach to programming
doesn't provide the best education for attendee. Rather than
lump together a series of panels and workshops based on who is
available on a given date, our conferences
and workshops are developed with the curriculum first. Then,
the most talented professionals are sought to conduct each topic.
writer tracks are programmed in a logical, progressive order,
much like a scholastic curriculum. Rather than use terms
like "freshman", "junior" or "senior," or "high
school", "college", or "post-grad" we
refer to "aspiring," "active"
and "accomplished" writers to help you seek
your own level of interest. You learn in a group of your peers,
regardless of age or background, where everyone is relatively
at the same level of expertise. The result is a more rewarding
educational experience for everyone.
