About this Event
Ready to take your writing to the next level?

Join The Writer’s staff, readers, and special guest speakers for our inaugural writing conference this fall. Whether you’re looking to get a better grasp of the modern publishing industry, receive practical craft advice from our panel of experts, or network with fellow writers, you’ll find a wide variety of sessions for every genre and every writer. Attendees can also take advantage of our professional manuscript critique service and/or our exclusive Fiction Masterclass, which offers hands-on craft instruction in an intimate small-group setting.

If you're working on a story and it's going nowhere, the problem may lie with your protagonist, and not with your plot. In this generative session, join author, editor, and The Writer columnist Yi Shun Lai for a deep dive into your characters' personalities, their motives, and their backstories – and learn how those can drive your plot in true page-turning fashion.

About our 10-page manuscript critique service

Submit a 10-page fiction or nonfiction manuscript to receive a written critique from our staff. We’ll include in-depth feedback on what’s working well in your draft and what perhaps needs some improvement. All participants will receive their critique onsite in their conference registration packet.

Note: If a critique is not submitted by the given deadline, we cannot guarantee your critique will be completed in time for the event.All registration options
