WC proudly presents our 22nd conference for writers.
The Genre-LA Creative Writing Conference is your opportunity to learn from more than 30 published masters, literary agents, editors, publishers, best-selling authors, industry experts, Hollywood veterans, educators, and publishing professionals who will share their expertise in the craft and business of writing to help take your writing to the next level and guide your career on the path to success.

Education and Inspiration for All Writers

No matter what genre you are writing, this is a unique venue to learn how to visualize brave new worlds of wonder, create compelling memorable characters (both human and otherwise), plot and structure amazing story lines using your unique imagination, then write blockbuster stories, award-winning novels, screenplays and graphic novels.

Plus, you can learn more about the business of writing, how to build a platform, engage successfully in marketing and social networking, plus expand your knowledge of copyrights, trademarks, and more. You will also learn how to edit and polish your novels and screenplays, then pitch to literary agents in the right market.

The conference is ideal for all aspiring, active, and accomplished writers who want to improve the quality of their work –– regardless of genre –– and increase chances for success as an author.Details and Learn more here ...
