Last summer, nearly 900 writers joined us in New York City for WDC19—an unforgettable weekend of inspiration, education and building community—and 2020 is on track to be our biggest conference yet.
What is it about the conference that writers love so much?
“The highlight for me was the Pitch Slam, where I had the chance to pitch my book to seven amazing agents. I had requests for a partial or full manuscript from all seven agents, which felt like a great success. Then came a Christmas surprise: an offer of representation from Stacy Testa of Writer’s House on December 25th! It was a great way to end the year, and she has been wonderful to work with at every step of the publishing process.”

While not every attendee has a Pitch Slam success story to tell, there are plenty of other valuable takeaways from the experience…
