Now you can! At the The 2017 Genre-LA™ Writers Conference, more than 40 published masters of these genres along with literary agents, editors, publishers, celebrity and best-selling authors, industry experts, Hollywood veterans, educators, and publishing professionals, will share their experiences and secrets of success to help take your writing to the next level.
Over three intensive days, you will learn how to brainstorm new ideas, evaluate the structure of a story, create compelling memorable characters (both human and otherwise), plot and structure amazing story lines of imagination, use research to develop brave new worlds of wonder, and then develop stand-alone award-winning novels, short stories, screenplays and graphic novels.
You will also learn how to edit and polish your work, then pitch literary agents and publishers. In addition to the seminars, workshops, panels, and pitch sessions, writers will also enjoy a themed reception Friday night, Keynote Address Luncheon on Saturday and Sunday, plus have opportunities to network with attendees, celebrity authors, and honored faculty after each session. This event is open to all disciplines and levels of expertise.
We will also offer sessions on the business of writing, including how to build your platform, engage successfully in marketing and social networking, plus details about copyrights, trademarks, and more.
Plus, you can meet and pitch literary agents and publishers looking for new talent with polished manuscripts.
Our goal is to help aspiring, active, and accomplished writers improve the quality of
their work by taking it to the next level, and improving the chances for a successful career as an author!
