Will 2017 be your year to break through to publication?
Get one step closer to becoming a published writer by attending the 33rd annual SDSU Writers’ Conference, Jan. 20-22, 2017, at the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley.
Each year, more than 300 attendees from all over the world pursue their literary dreams and get direct feedback on their writing in 1:1 appointments with editors and agents. The three-day SDSU conference was among the first to pioneer these 1:1 appointments, giving writers unprecedented access to top-tier publishing professionals — many of whom interact with unpublished authors only through conferences.
Award-winning, best-selling, and thrilling keynote speakers:
n R.L. Stine – One of the best-selling children's authors in history
n J.A. Jance – Top 10 New York Times best-selling author
n Jonathan Maberry – Best-selling author and five-time Bram Stoker Award-winner
n Sherrilyn Kenyon – International and New York Times #1 best-selling author of fantasy, horror, and more
New features this year include: 1 pm starting time on Friday opening with keynote speaker Maberry, and a hosted dinner. There will also be more than 40 concurrent workshops – the most ever – facilitated by top publishing professionals.
Networking opportunities include dinner and genre-specific tables with fellow writers and faculty, a Saturday evening reception, and countless moments to mix with other writers, editors, and agents from throughout the United States.
The conference takes place 1-9 pm Friday, Jan. 20; 8:30 am-7 pm Saturday, Jan. 21; and 9 am-12 pm Sunday, Jan. 22. On-site registration begins at 11 am on Friday, with the first breakout session at 2:15 pm.
