COVID-19 updates: We are excited to announce that the 2021 Writers' Institute will take place April 8-11, 2021. See the UW–Madison Smart Restart website for information on how the university will welcome students back to campus in fall 2020.

Two Months And Counting

Two months from now we will be in the middle of our four day Writers’ Institute weekend.

So much is planned – Four Keynote Speakers, Success Panel Lunch, two writing contests, our Live Lit event, agent pitches, over 50 sessions, Master Classes, and more.

Additionally, we are offering an event on Friday evening featuring agents Erik Hane and Laura Zats who will be presenting a session of their popular Print Run podcast. They’ll provide on-the-spot feedback regarding your query letters and first pages. This will not only be a beneficial session, but a fun one as well. Be sure to listen to their podcast before the conference – here’s the link:
