You Have Questions. Past Attendees Have Answers!



There’s no getting around it. Committing to a writing conference takes guts. And a little bit of time and an investment of money. So we understand when people might be hesitant to pull the trigger on a ticket. Everyone has questions and concerns and everyone has different writing goals. So we thought the best way to address them about the upcoming Writer’s Digest Novel Writing Conference would be to share some of the most common questions we hear and, instead of having us blather on, share what past attendees have had to say about the subject.

Read on! (Oh, and if you decide to register, try to do so before July 24 when you can get an entire extended weekend full of targeted, novel-focused instruction for less than $300.)

Will it really be helpful?

“My first writer’s conference—this was ideal for me. Lots of good information, arranged in shorter sessions that spoke directly to my needs at this stage of writing. Enjoyed it immensely.” Kathleen | 2017 Attendee

Huh, is this thing actually worth it?

“The venue was excellent! The space was nice and there were restaurants within walking distance. It also felt like a safer place. I really enjoyed listening to the keynote speakers. Thank you for putting on such an excellent program, it was wonderful!” Leslie | 2017 Attendee 

I’m a beginner. Will there be anything there for me?

“This was my first conference and I found it incredibly helpful, I would definitely like to attend another. I particularly liked the breadth of topics available every hour, wonderful!” Amy | 2017 Attendee

Will it be awkward? Will I even meet people?

“Really enjoyed the event – it’s intense, and I was exhausted afterwards, but got excellent value, and met some terrific new writer friends. Can’t wait for next year!” Amanda | 2017 Attendee
