“This conference is where you go from thinking about being a writer to becoming one.” – Vincent Alascia
Welcome to the Southwest Valley Writers Conference. We are thrilled about our schedule for this year’s conference and hope you will be also.
This one-day event is designed to allow you to connect with industry professionals and other writers who have gathered to share their knowledge and love of writing. Each fall, writers (and would-be writers) of all genres come to the Valley of the Sun to hear speakers and participate in workshops in order to hone their current skills and learn some new ones.
Whether you are looking for an editor, or hoping to learn more about the aspects of plot and character, you’ll find many wonderful and useful sessions that will inspire you.
In past years, we have hosted notable authors, editors, and agents as speakers, including Jana Bommersbach, J. A. Jance, Peter Bowerman, Annette Rogers, and Laura DiSilverio.
Join us in Avondale, just southwest of Phoenix, for a day spent with others who are as passionate about writing as you are, and come away with tools and inspiration to take your own writing career to the next level.
Conference proceeds benefit The Friends of the Avondale Libraries, a Not-for-Profit (501c3) organization.
