What does it take to make a great story?

Who are the storytellers?

What’s your story?

What story will you dare to tell?

Something for everyone

Our conference features topics that apply to any writer, no matter where you are in your journey. From just starting out to those authors who want to take it to the next level, you’ll find the content and the connections you need.

And you’ll get your chance to hear from and even talk to great authors who’ve been where you are, agents, editors, and others who can help you achieve your writing goals and dreams whatever they might be.
