The Whidbey Island Writers Conference invites you to bring your passion for the written word to our beautiful island in Puget Sound, October 25-27, 2013.
Writers of all genres, experience and ability are welcome at the Whidbey Island Writers Conference
Gather with your fellow writers for the 15th annual Whidbey Island Writers Conference where, surrounded by mountains, forests and water, experienced professional writers, agents and editors will share their knowledge, technique, practical experience and joy of writing. Cross the lovely waters of Puget Sound and immerse yourself in the written word, hone your craft and sharpen your marketing and publicity skills. When you leave you’ll be a stronger and a better writer.
Each year we hope that all who come will bring with them a hunger for learning and inspiration and that they will leave fully sated. Plan now to join us on Whidbey Island for this unique and supportive conference.
Please come and feast on the rich offerings available through classes and workshops on a variety of subjects important to today’s writers, as well as Agent/Editor consultations; manuscript critiques and the most beloved feature of the conference, our Fireside Chat Houses.
Thanks and gratitude to all who help make the conference possible
The conference succeeds each year because of the vision of our founding director, Celeste Mergens, the efforts of our talented and dedicated conference team, and the generosity of our knowledgeable and giving presenters. Sincere gratitude to all who work to make the Conference so wonderful, and to all those writers who hear the call and choose to come to Whidbey … for the love of writing!
We look forward to seeing you in Coupeville in October 2013.
Kim Cottrell, Conference Director
