What is the SFWC?
This will be the 18th Celebration of Craft, Commerce and Community for all writers. Attendees will join with 100+ presenters and fellow writers from across the country and around the world at this year’s event. The SFWC events are consistently rated among the top writers’ conferences anywhere. Our goal is to help writers become published authors as we help them become better at the craft and business of writing. The SFWC is also one of the friendliest conferences around.
Presenters this year will include best-selling authors, literary agents, editors, and publishers from major publishing houses. There will be experts on self-publishing, book promotion, platform building, social media, audiobooks, podcasting, and author websites.
The San Francisco Writers Conference has one of the largest faculties of any writers’ conference to ensure the best networking with the people who can help you get published. All of our presenters are in person at the SFWC events and eager to share their expertise and love of writing. As presenters for 2022 are confirmed in 2021, they are added to the SFWC Presenters page, with links to their websites.
What happens at the SFWC?
The event spans four days…and also offers optional Pre- and Post-Event Master Classes!
The event is packed with nearly 100 sessions for writers— from the craft of writing to the business of publishing.
There is copious networking with the very people who can advance your writing career, a glorious gala, keynotes and continental breakfasts, lots of social interaction with other writers, a Friday evening networking event, and an invaluable ‘practice your pitch’ session. Want feedback? Attendees can have a free one-on-one session with an independent editor AND another with a book coach or marketing expert. There will be exhibitors with services and tools for writers, too.
If you are working on your book, getting ready to publish it, or looking for ways to promote an already published book, this is the event you need to attend.
