Celebrating 65 Years!

September 24th - 27th 2020

The PNWA is excited to bring you our first-ever virtual conference.

The Pacific Northwest Writers Conference is one of the longest-running professional writer’s conferences in the world, dedicated to helping authors in all stages of their writing career.

 

We have a full four-day conference planned for you, complete with masterclasses that usually cost extra, all rolled into one price. New this year: single-day packages that include that day’s masterclasses and a round-table pitch!

 

Are you excited yet? We are! ​

 

Welcome, and can’t wait to “see” you there.

Ready to register?

We’d be delighted to have you join us. Our intention is to provide you with a robust line up of workshops, Master Classes, pitch opportunities, evening events, and opportunities to help you mingle with fellow writers. All the benefits you’ve come to expect from attending the PNWA conference - only virtual.  We have a full conference and day pass options.  Go ahead.  Sign up today and let’s get this party started!

We have swag this year too!

We have some great ebooks from some of our fabulous authors this year. I know it's not the same as coming in person to the convention and getting the lovely bag of SWAG but there is nothing normal about this year. So in hopes of making this conference as close as we can to a "normal" we will be randomly giving out ebooks to all of our attendees. We don't have enough of each book to give to each and everyone of you but we will do our best to get you something!

Location

We are virtual this year!

This year we will be hosting our conference online. Each day, you will have several options for workshops. Sessions will be a mix of live Zoom webinars and pre-recorded YouTube videos with live question & answer sessions hosted on Zoom.

Links to workshop sessions will be available for one month* after the conference, so no worries about missing something.  *Some sessions may not be recorded depending on speaker permission.
