The 2016 Chicago Writers Conference
The annual Chicago Writers Conference celebrates its fifth year downtown at Conference Chicago! Out of town attendees can stay nearby at Hotel Blake, where we’ll have a special rate for attendees.
Topics for 2016 include Writing Unlikable Characters, How to Pitch, our popular Panel of Agents, and, of course, Pitchfest, where you can pitch your book idea to an agent or editor.
