Chicago Writers Conference
connecting writers with publishing professionals
We bring together writers, editors, agents, publishers and social media experts at an informative annual conference, and at workshops and events throughout the year. Enjoy personal connections with other writers, publishers and agents.
Our annual conference is not genre- or niche-specific. Writers of all levels and all genres are welcome!
Our goal is to provide practical advice to help writers learn how to sell and promote their work. Topics include:
- Ways to get your work published (traditional or digital; fiction or non-fiction)
- How to query agents
- Connecting with agents
- Advice from Fiction and Non Fiction Publishers
- Strategies for promoting your work online
- Website/blog creation
- Social media tactics
- Content marketing
- Engaging with the writing community
Everyone is Welcome!
You don’t need to have a completed manuscript to attend — just a willingness to learn, exchange ideas, and have fun!
The Chicago Writers Conference is an Illinois 501c3 not-for-profit corporation.
