2016 Writing Conferences

Spring is upon us with new anticipated books hitting the shelves (cough, cough Anne Bishop). Also, it means writing conferences starting. From April to September writers congregate to hone their craft and pitch their stories. I’ve shifted through the various conferences, and thought I’d share some reputable conferences to attend. I’d love to hear from you, if you have a favorite, and I can add it to the list.


Desert Dreams, April 7-10, 2016, Scottsdale, AZ  http://desertroserwa.org/desertdreams

The Scottsdale Romance Writers’ organization puts on a fabulous four day conference full of workshops, and pitches to agents. I know several who have attended and it comes highly recommended, especially for the price.


Las Vegas Writers’ Conference, April 28-30, 2016 http://lasvegaswritersconference.com/

I would love to hear the keynote speaker, Larry Brooks.


National Romance Writers Association Conference, July 13-16 2016, San Diego, CA


Great conference and great location. Who doesn’t love San Diego in July?


Pikes Peak Writers’ Conference, April 15-17, 2016, Colorado Springs, CO



And if you really feel like going all out, you can even go on a writing cruise

Out of Excuses Writing Conference, September 14-17, 2016, Caribbean


Cruising around the Caribbean with Brandon Sanderson and a host of very accomplished writers sounds epic.
