Genre-La™ Writers Conference

The Genre-LA™ Genre Creative Writers Conference has historically been one of our best events of the year (now our 30th), and we always strive to make each one better.

The Virtual Event

GENRE-LA offers a unique program so that everyone can participate virtually. Unlike other conferences that attempt to offer a virtual program by simply moving everything on-line with concurrent workshops on one weekend, we provide a unique, more personal experience over nine (9) days & nights plus two weekends

  • GENRE-LA will run with consecutive topics from Friday, October 22nd through Saturday, October 30th with a full day on Saturday and Sunday, plus 4-5 hours each night on weekdays. In other words, you can enjoy the entire event in the safety of your home or office, every topic, every workshop, every opportunity to meet and pitch agents, editors, publishers, and industry professionals.
  • It will be held via Zoom Webinars, using your web browser and simple, free software. We provide an Online training session for virtual first-timers.
  • The software is FREE to YOU. So, instead of missing 2/3 of the workshops as happens with live multi-track events, you will be able to take advantage of EVERYTHING.
  • The 1-on-1 pitch sessions with literary agents, editors, scouts, and publishers is conducted via confidential zoom meetings, where no one else can hear your conversation. Depending on the bookings, your personal session could be held either during or immediately after the event.
  • Plus, you will be shipped a reusable swag bag with pens, literature, and other goodies by snail-mail.

Another benefit is that agents and notable speakers who decline to travel or appear in public at all this summer, are willing to appear and speak in a virtual format. We will post a new faculty listing with BIOS as they confirm, which promises to be impressive for all.

We hope this exciting opportunity will meet with your approval and you will continue on for this educational and inspirational event. If you have any questions, please email or give us a call to discuss.

Attendance will be UNLIMITED at this boutique event, so now is the time to take advantage of special low rates for this popular conference!
