Why attend?

Expert Faculty

MWW19 features a remarkable faculty who know their stuff, providing information for both aspiring and practicing writers at all stages of their journey. MWW19 offers a gathering place for writers looking to improve their craft.


MWW19 will allow you to connect with fellow writers and gain insight from award-winning authors who will help you move forward in your writing career, regardless of whether you’re currently a beginner or a veteran of several books. Wherever you are in your writing career, there is always something new that you can learn at this writing conference. The networking is incomparable to anything else, and it will allow you to grow as a writer.

Join us July 25-27 for three days of finding your people and growing as a writer. On Thursday and Friday, you can choose from 28 craft sessions according to your own interests.

On Saturday, we have options for everyone! We’re offering genre-specific learning sessions designed for writers serious about pursuing a given genre. You will spend the day with the instructor and other writers who share your interest. These Intensive small-group sessions are limited to small class sizes.

  • If you are a published author or about-to-be-published author, you can choose Author Platform and Career Development Bootcamp with Jane Friedman.
  • Sessions to hone your first 10 pages! Deadline extended until JULY 15! As many writers know, agents and editors won’t give your work more than ten pages or so to make an impact. If you haven’t got them hooked by then, it’s a safe bet you won’t be asked for more material. Make sure you’ve got the kind of opening they’re looking for! In these intensive sessions, you’ll get input to refine the first ten pages.
    • If you write fiction and nonfiction, you can choose Manuscript Makeover or Developmental Editing.
    • If you write mystery or romance, you can choose the Intensive with an award-winning instructor in that genre.
  • If you have a nonfiction book idea, you can choose Nonfiction Book Proposal Workshop with Kelsey Timmerman.

Whether you come for all three days, or two days, or just one day, you will depart MWW19 equipped and motivated to take the next step in your writing journey.
