About the 2020 Seattle Writing Workshop

WHAT IS IT?

(IMPORTANT MARCH 2020 UPDATE: The 2020 SWW is now an Online Conference to keep everyone safe. There is much more to say about this, but immediately you should understand 1) This will be easy and awesome, 2) You do not have to be tech-savvy to do this, and 3) We are keeping all aspects of the event, including one-on-one agent & editor pitching, which will now be done by Skype or phone. Learn all details about the new April 25 SWW Online Conference here and what everything means.)

This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writers conference on Saturday, April 25, 2020, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle Bellevue. In other words, it’s one day full of classes and advice designed to give you the best instruction concerning how to get your writing & books published. We’ll discuss your publishing opportunities today, how to write queries & pitches, how to market yourself and your books, what makes an agent/editor stop reading your manuscript, and more. No matter what you’re writing — fiction or nonfiction — the day’s classes will help point you in the right direction. Writers of all genres are welcome.

You can ask any questions you like during the classes, and get your specific concerns addressed. We will have literary agents onsite to give feedback and take pitches from writers, as well. By the end of the day, you will have all the tools you need to move forward on your writing journey.

The 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2019 Seattle Writing Workshops were a success, and we are excited about the 2020 event. Registration for 2020 is now OPEN.

This independent event is organized by coordinator Chuck Sambuchino of Writing Day Workshops, with assistance from local writing groups.
