The event spans four days…and also offers optional Pre- and Post-Event 3-hour Master Classes!
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, our Pub Quiz, and an invaluable ‘practice your pitch’ session. Want feedback? Attendees can have a free one-on-one session with an independent editor, book coach, and marketing expert. There will be exhibitors with services and tools for writers, too.
What to expect at the SFWC?
The included SFWC Gala networking party is on Saturday evening and it is followed by the Poets and Jazz event.
If you can stay longer, there is a no-host banquet on Sunday afternoon where you can keep the networking going with SFWC presenters, staff, and volunteers. On Thursday evening and on Sunday afternoon there will be several optional Master Classes too, which are available even if you’re not registered for the main conference, so please, tell your writing buddies!
All attendees get a commemorative tote bag with writing goodies! The SFWC offers so much social and one-on-one networking time with other writers and industry professionals. After-hours hosted networking events, poetry happenings, No-pitch/No-host meet ups in the bar? You bet. Don’t want to eat dinner alone? There is a no-host dinner every night at a different San Francisco restaurant. Our attendees tell us this friendly yet professional atmosphere is what makes SFWC the conference they choose to attend.
