October 23-25, 2015
Every year, the Genre-LA™ Writers Conference is devoted to the craft and business of writing one or more genres. Each event includes genre-specific panels, seminars, interactive workshops, pitch sessions and more, featuring educators, industry experts, best-selling authors, literary agents and publishers in an inspirational and educational
setting. Some presenters are perennial favorites, some are the newest and brightest voices in the country.
The 2015 Writers Conference is devoted to writing memoirs, autobiographies, or biographies, where you can learn how to write a book that a much wider audience than just your family will want to buy and read. Discover the secrets of how to organize your plot points and evaluate their added value to the story; how to research and write an effective non-fiction work; how to write a true story without potential legal entanglements, how to write the all-important book proposal, and how to pitch an agent or publisher, plus more. Additional topics will include the fine art of fictionalizing your story for a book or screenplay.
Attendees can also take advantage of advance submission ProCritiques™ of their work by professional editors, and Masters ProCritiques™ with literary agents and publishers. You can also meet with agents and publishers looking for new talent during free pitch sessions, by appointment. The event is open to all levels.
This educational and inspirational conference will be held at the historic Los
Angeles Valley College (address and maps). Limited Early-bird registration discounts are available.
