Since 2007, Northern Colorado Writers has provided support and encouragement to writers of all levels and genres in Northern Colorado and beyond. Through monthly meetings, classes, networking & social events, the annual conference, the monthly newsletter and annual retreat, NCW helps new and established writers navigate their way to success.

Agent Roundables

This if for those writers who have a COMPLETED FICTION manuscript or a COMPLETE PROPOSAL for Nonfiction 

These will be chosen and assigned in February. There is no extra charge for the roundtables.

Back by popular demand. Each Literary Agent will participate in two, one-hour roundtable sessions on Friday afternoon. During each of these sessions there will be 7 writers at each table. Each writer will read aloud the first page of his/her manuscript. Everyone at the table will have a copy in front of them as well.

 After the writer is done reading, the agent will take a few minutes to comment on what was read. The other participants in the group can make comments on the page, but only the agents will give verbal feedback. If the agent is interested in talking more with an author about his/her book, they will invite you to have a 15 minute, one-on-one appointment with them the next morning. The conference staff will let the writer know if an agent wants to visit with him/her. Nothing will be said at the table in front of the whole group.

2014 Conference Comments

"I will remember best the feeling of the conference, one of inclusiveness and warmth. Yes, the seminars were excellent, but I felt good there and left with an overall positive impression."

"The kindness and approachability of the faculty/agents/editors; meeting new friends; catching up with old friends; top-notch speakers/sessions."

Special Lodging Rates


The Hilton is offering a special lodging rate for NCWC attendees. Make it a writer's weekend for yourself and stay at the Hilton on Friday evening (and maybe even Saturday). Then you can fully enjoy the event, participate in the gentle yoga session Saturday morning at 7:00 and maybe squeeze in time for some writing.
