Would you like to present at our next conference? 

13th Annual Northern Colorado Writers Conference is May 4 & 5, 2018, Fort Collins Marriott.

[We are now closed for proposals for our 2018 conference.] Please email proposals to Director April Moore between June 1 and August 31 for the following year's conference. You may submit several proposed sessions in one email. It's recommended you submit more than one proposed session, as we often have presenters teach two 1-hour classes/workshops.

Craft classes/workshops:

All types of fiction
Creative nonfiction (memoir, essays, magazine writing)
Poetry

Children's writing

The business of writing:

Marketing
Query letters, proposals, synopses
Social media
Publishing industry and the various options

Other:
