The Whidbey Island Writers Conference is geared toward writers at both ends of their careers (beginning and professional), with sessions on craft, marketing, and the publishing business.

At our annual conference on stunning, peaceful Whidbey Island, WA, participants meet local and national best-selling authors, agents, and editors. Faculty members are on hand to help with networking and pitching ideas for books. Everyone from beginning writers to long-time professionals learns in classes designed to address both the craft and business sides of writing and publishing. All attendees will leave the conference up-to-date on industry changes, and learn how to position work for publication well into the future. The conference also hosts a young writers day for the up-and-coming novelists still in school.
