About the 2020 Philadelphia Writing Workshop

(IMPORTANT JUNE 2020 UPDATE: The 2020 PWW is now an Online Conference to keep everyone safe, on November 14-15, 2020. There is much more to say about this, but immediately you should understand 1) This will be easy and awesome, and online conferences we’ve done thus far have received wonderful feedback, 2) You do not have to be tech-savvy to do this, and 3) We are keeping all aspects of the event, including one-on-one agent & editor pitching, which will now be done by Skype or Zoom or phone. Learn all details about the Nov. 14-15 PWW Online Conference here and what everything means.)



This is a special two-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, November 14-15, 2020, at the Sonesta Philadelphia Downtown Rittenhouse Square, 1800 Market St., Philadelphia, PA 19103. In other words, it’s one day full of classes and advice designed to give you the best instruction concerning how to get your writing & books published. We’ll discuss your publishing opportunities today, how to write queries & pitches, how to market yourself and your books, what makes an agent/editor stop reading your manuscript, and more. No matter what you’re writing — fiction or nonfiction — the day’s classes will help point you in the right direction. Writers of all genres are welcome.

You can ask any questions you like during the classes, and get your specific concerns addressed. We will have literary agents onsite to give feedback and take pitches from writers, as well.

The 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 Philadelphia Writing Workshops were successes, and we are excited about this next event. Registration for 2020 is now OPEN.

This independent event is organized by coordinator Brian Klems of Writing Day Workshops, with administrative assistance from regional SE PA writing groups.
