What’s new for 2015:

  • Two New Intensives
    After you register, you’ll have the opportunity on the confirmation page to add-on either our Self-Publishing Intensive or our Non-Fiction Book Proposal Intensive, both on Friday, September 25.
  • More Pitchfest Sessions
    You’ll also be able to purchase up to two (2) Pitchfest appointments after you register. This will be your only chance to purchase a Pitchfest appointment, so read the bios and choose wisely! Space is limited.
  • Small Sessions – for conference attendees only
    Small Sessions are a chance to sit down with a literary professional who’s been in the trenches and learn from her/his expertise. There is no additional charge for small sessions, but you must be registered for CWC 2015, and you must sign up in advance via the “Add to My Sched” link on the schedule. Limit 10 attendees per small session.Note: Small Sessions are for registered conference attendees only. Any non-registered attendees signing up for small sessions will be deleted immediately.
