On April 15th 2018, the International Women’s Writing Guild will host its annual “Spring Big Apple” conveniently located at the historic Poets House. The all-day Sunday event encompasses three hands-on workshops (facilitated by Yun Wei, Paula Chaffee Scardamalia and Cathleen O’Connor) pivoted around how to write, pitch and publish your work. The conference also includes a catered lunch, a session for attendees to meet literary agents, and a New Authors panel on pathways to publication. The day will close with IWWG’s signature “All Voices Open Mic”- in which all attendees will have the chance to share their writing.
The International Women’s Writing Guild was founded in 1976 to provide a space for all women writers to feel welcomed, inspired and empowered by skills, resources, and mentoring.
Today, members of the Guild have published over thousands of books, and the organization provides one of the longest running literary conferences in the country. Through the Guild, countless writers have gained publishing resources, received one-of-a-kind writing guidance, forged new friendships, found greater self-expression and developed their craft.
While the non-members fee is $185 for this exceptional literary day, the rate for students has been reduced to $45. There is also a new member special, where for $195 attendees will receive access to the event along with membership to the Guild for the whole year.
The conference, this year entitled “Women, Creativity & Craft: Write, Pitch, Publish” is not only a chance to advance one’s writing and publishing opportunities, but also to learn firsthand more about the Guild’s role as a vital support system for women writers around the world.
