Writers study with phenomenal writers in an intimate virtual setting. Work on your writing with the best of the best.

::This event will be virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. We appreciate your understanding.::

The Writer’s Hotel Virtual Weekend Conferences are generative and include Genre Labs (generative workshops) and dynamic craft and publishing lectures, curated by Directors Shanna McNair and Scott Wolven of The Writer's Hotel Writers Conference. We take writers and their writing to the next level. Our Weekend Conferences are a bit shorter than our larger conference and they are also cheaper. All of the Genre Labs, Lectures and Readings will be virtual in 2020. 

Our TWH Weekend Conferences are tailored to writers who are serious about craft and who also want to bond with their fellows and enjoy readings each night. The program is designed to provide writers with the tools and information they need to take their work to the next level. From the creative side of writing to the business end of publication, The Writer’s Hotel Weekend Conferences cover it all. Please see our full schedules for each program for more details.
