Learn about WDC from an attendee’s point of view!

Behind the scenes at the Writer’s Digest Annual Conference, we are purveyors of dynamic education for every kind of writer, and our goal is to provide the fundamentals you need to flourish while you’re under our roof. We give you access to top-notch speakers, a space to connect with friends, and plenty of inspiration-packed sessions to choose from.

After WDC wraps up, we immerse ourselves in feedback from our attendees, and there’s nothing better than reading about the life-changing moments we helped create.


Here’s a look at what 2017 attendees took away from their WDC experience:

“This has been the most valuable writing conference I’ve attended. The WD staff was attentive, the speakers phenomenal, the offerings perfect, and the keynotes enchanting. The pitch slam had an excellent mix of agents! The connections I made were invaluable. This is the best money I have spent on anything in a very long time! Can’t wait to come back next year!” – Lynette T. – 2017 Attendee


“When I signed up, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I heard some amazing people talking about writing and books and had many conversations with people who are as passionate about this process as I am. I will definitely be returning.” – Eloisa D. – 2017 Attendee

“I took 60+ pages of notes that I cannot wait to get typed up and saved to my hard drive–they are that valuable! I learned more than I thought I would. The conference exceeded my expectations. The keynote speakers were incredible, as were the session speakers. The conference was worth every penny. I have a lot of work to do now, and that is a wonderful thing. As a newbie writer, I stuck strictly to the “craft” side of the sessions offered. My goal is to apply all that I have learned and to attend again in the future with polished projects that I can pitch. Thank you!” – Jennifer M. – 2017 Attendee


“Truly an amazing and outstanding event and experience! I especially love the variety of workshops available, and how easy it is to meet and network with other writers from around the country/world!” – Cassie C. – 2017 Attendee
