Join Northern Colorado Writers for a roaring good time at the Fort Collins Hilton, for the 10th annual writer’s conference March 27-28, 2015. Hearken back to a golden age of writing, when rules were challenged and words flowed like jazz music and champagne. Mingle with authors of all levels and genres. Meet with agents and editors. Learn the craft from industry professionals like.  And, in honor of a decade of NCW conferences, be inspired by our very first keynote speaker,  LeAnn Theiman, who is now a member of the Speaker Hall of Fame and  bestselling author. To ensure a great experience for everyone, attendance is limited to 130 participants.

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.
