What is the Catholic Writers Conference?

Our conference allows you to connect personally with Catholic publishers and retailers, learn more about the craft of writing, show your work, and network.

Each year we host:

  • workshops on marketing and writing
  • pitch sessions
  • group critique sessions
  • CWG Members meeting (guests welcome)

Catholic Writers Conference Live 2017

Register for the Catholic Writers Conference Live

As always, you will have access to the Catholic Marketing Network trade show floor, where you can meet publishers, vendors and book store owners. It’s a great place to network. CMN is offering several events to our attendees as well, like pilgrimages and meal events. While we’ve handled registration for these events in the past, this year CMN is taking your registrations for us through CMN's web site:

Online registration closes July 14, 2017, but we take in-person registrations during the conference. So make your plans! Get those plane tickets or prep the car. This is going to be another awesome week of writing, fellowship and faith.

The conference schedule is under development and has some exciting speakers and events! Keep checking back for more.

The CWG has been a blessing at both local and national levels. With the encouragement and support from you, I have truly grown as a fledgling writer. I look forward to next year! Paula Babadi

Through all this week's seminars I was so encouraged by such friendly members, and especially the liberty to express our faith throughout the writing process. Colleen Blevins
