Conferences (WC2) offers writers of all genres
and disciplines a wealth of essential information, inspiration, education and consultation
in the craft and business of writing.
Each event, from half-day workshops to writing retreats, to full weekend conferences, features industry experts,
educators, agents, publishers, and best-selling authors in one or more disciplines and genres.
Advantages of attending a
First. Each event is tailored to benefit the
greatest number of attendees, within the focus. Programs at some other events may not provide the benefits you desire, because their curriculum is not the first priority. Rather
than lump panels and workshops together simply based on
who is available on a given date, WC2 develops the curriculum first, then identifies the most talented
educators to conduct each topic.
Cost-Effective. WC2 strives to keep our events affordable for writers
by presenting them at facilities with a lower overhead, and offer
amenities more in-line with a writer's financial resources. This
makes it feasible for more writers to attend, which helps offset the lower
pricing. Save money. Learn more.
Peer-to-Peer Atmosphere. WC2 events are
often held at educational facilities
in a quality peer-to-peer, friendly, learning environment.
As WC2 is owned and operated by writers, we work hard to create a welcoming atmosphere, so
you feel a part of our "Ohana" or family.
Objectivity. WC2 strives to present many different points of view at each conference without fostering a particular perspective or opinion. We try to remain neutral and allow you to choose
the most appropriate path to reach your goals as a writer.
Our staff is chosen for their
expertise and friendliness. Many are fellow writers and veterans
of other conferences, so they are well-versed in the needs of the event and attendees. Also, we are fortunate to maintain a
higher than usual staff-to-attendee ratio, so you get more VIP attention
at every turn. (Read some of our many testimonials) Above
all, WC2 events are focused on providing a quality
learning experience in an affordable, inspirational and educational environment
with the best resources in the country.
