Surrey International Writers Conference 2023 (Canada)

Surrey International Writers Conference 2023 (Canada)

Fall is here and it’s time again for the 31st annual Surrey International Writers’ Conference! Two days of master classes on Wednesday, October 18th & Thursday, October 19th, followed by three conference days on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, the 20th-22nd.

Depending on the workshop, it will be recorded, virtual, or in person, and the registration fees are completely reasonable. SiWC 2023 registration is still open, but pre-conference registration closes Oct 11th at noon Pacific time!

Though I haven’t attended this conference, I do have writer friends who have, and they got a lot out of it. While looking over the workshops offered this year, I was impressed by the variety of valuable topics. Check them out at the link below!

It’s that time again! The RMFW Conference 2023 is nearly upon us. September 8-10, 2023, in Colorado, to be exact! It is being held at the Hyatt Regency Aurora/Denver.

I scoured the website today for conference details, and, as usual, it’s full of solid, helpful roundtables and classes. As a member of RMFW and former volunteer board member, I can tell you RMFW is a solid organization now celebrating its 40th year.

I’ve attended this conference multiple times, and it’s definitely worth a writer’s time, al though this year I have to say I don’t see opportunities to pitch to agents or publishers. I plan to email them regarding that, after I take a second look… perhaps I somehow missed it. There are, however, agents offering their time and expertise in round table or learning sessions, along with other writing professionals .



Along with the workshops and roundtables offered, it is an excellent opportunity for networking; there are chats to be had over muffins in the morning or entrees at dinner.

There’s even a convenient download option if you’d like to save the schedule, and, if you sign in, you can personalize the schedule according to your interests.

In addition to Friday – Sun, there are Thursday intensives to choose from. Good luck, it won’t be easy to pick!!
