Check out the 19th Annual Surrey International Writer's Conference, October 21-23, 2011.
Established in 1993 as a small, school-related event, the Surrey International Writers’ Conference has grown to attract hundreds of enthusiastic, dedicated writers annually. The conference holds a wide appeal to writers of all genres and skill levels, and offers exceptional
opportunities for professional development. We strive to encourage writers of every experiential level to interact with agents, editors, publishers and filmmakers to broaden their understanding of, and presence in, the literary marketplace.
One of the biggest draws for many conference-goers is the chance to meet one-on-one with acquiring editors and agents for brief 10-minute interviews (at no extra charge), during the entire weekend. The weekend is made up of workshops, panels and special events galore; all aimed at helping writers grow. This year more than 70 workshops cover topics as wide ranging as *Social Media Strategies for Writers and Boot Camp For Procrastinators*. A full description of all the workshops is available on our website: www.siwc.ca
