Learn the craft from industry professionals.

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.
