Southern California Writers Conference Los Angeles 17


A Weekend For Words, September 20-22, 2019

THE GREAT WHITE ART is what John Gardner called it, what it is that we writers do, crafting pages from blank. While artists we may be, today’s publishing realities mandate that, in order to win over the needed, passionate advocates of our work, we must also become entrepreneurial authors. Entrepreneurial in spirit. Entrepreneurial in execution. Excellence in craft alone no longer cuts it. But excellence in craft and a meaningful book still matters most.

Having facilitated well over $4 million worth of first-time authors’ book and screen deals since 1986, the SCWC remains devoted to writers of all levels working to become both exceptional authors and entrepreneurial self-advocates. Through our uniquely tailored, inclusive programs the SCWC empowers writers with the vital recognition, encouragement and understanding to better succeed in today’s ever-changing transmedia marketplace.

Regardless which path to publication you are pursuing, whether you’re a writer just starting out, a writer unable to determine why your work’s not working, a writer simply in search of some answers, a writer wanting feedback on what you’ve written, or just a writer who wants to hang with other writers and publishing professionals in a safe, supportive community, you are welcome to join the 17th Annual Southern California Writers’ Conference *LA (in Irvine).

Because a writer is a writer before, as well as after, publication. And today more than at any other time, publishing is personal.

Limited to 150 conferees.
