Welcome to the 2018 Pathway to Publication Writers’ Institute

Greetings! I’m very happy to present our website for the 2018 UW-Madison Writers’ Institute, the Midwest’s premier conference now in its 29th year.

We’ve heard from many within our writing community and just about everyone is interested in being published – either for the first time or the fifth time. We welcome all levels of writers and this year the conference offers a special focus on the many ways to be published including the traditional agent/publisher path and self-publishing options.

Join us. Choose the Pathway to Publication that’s right for you.

Enjoy perusing our sessions, agents, speakers and networking opportunities and please do not hesitate to contact me at laurie.scheer@wisc.edu with any questions.

Hope to see you in April at the Madison Concourse Hotel in downtown Madison.



Laurie Scheer, director, 29th annual UW-Madison Writers’ Institute
