About the 2017 Philadelphia Writing Workshop


This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, April 8, 2017, 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 Philadelphia Writing Workshop was a success, and we are excited about this next event. Registration for 2017 is now OPEN.

This independent event is organized by coordinator Jessica Bell of Writing Day Workshops, with administrative assistance from the First Novels Club and the Eastern PA SCBWI.
