There is a writing conference for just about every day of the year. Here are a list for some of the larger events.


March 30th-April 2nd. AWP Conference & Bookfair at the  Los Angeles Convention Center & JW Marriott Los Angeles. If you missed the online registration you can register March 30th at the convention center.  Each year 12,000 attend.


June 13-17th is WIFYR (Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers). This is my favorite conference. They have small group classes where you can work with published authors, afternoon classes with great information to help you get published, and mingle with agents. Most beneficial conference I have ever attended.


The 45th Annual SCBWI Summer Conference in Los Angeles, July 29 – August 1, 2016. A fabulous conference with workshops, agents, authors, keynotes, and panelists. Registration starts in April 2016.


If you are a writer of Science Fiction you won’t want to miss MidAmericon II. It’s being held at the Kansas City Convention Center, Kansas, City, MO. Wednesday August 17th – Sunday August 21, 2016.
