What is the Catholic Writers Conference Online?
Catholic? Writer? Unable to afford the time or money to attend a live conference? Or maybe you have a hard time finding a conference where the people share your values. The Catholic Writers Conference Online is the conference for you. Affordably priced yet offering webinars from some of the top Catholic writers in the field, it not only fits even the most modest budget, but is also completely accessible through your computer. No travel needed! Plus, you'll hear presentations and meet people who don't just support your values - they celebrate them! Even better - we offer pitch sessions with publishers in the Catholic AND secular markets. This is the must-attend event for Catholic writers.
Here are some of the things you can look forward to:
- A greater emphasis on how our faith informs our writing.
- Practical advice and tips you can put to work immediately.
- Webinars for intermediate and advanced writers.
- Webinar format that incorporates audio and visuals.
- Pitch Sessions. Many of our authors already have contracts or published books from last year's session.
Why CWCO? A note from the founder, Karina Fabian
In 2007, I attended my first writing conference. What an experience! I sharpened my skills as a writer and was introduced to the then-new world of internet marketing. I sold my first novel to a small press publisher. I – an introvert who seldom socialized – attended a party and laughed for hours. To top it all off, I made connections that have pushed my publishing career forward and made friends that I can still depend upon for help or companionship.
But the most amazing thing? The conference was completely online!
Have you ever wished you could attend a conference, learn from the writers who had been there, done that and succeeded, meet publishers and make friends who identify with your passion for words?
Have you ever had to push that dream aside because live conferences don’t work for you? They may be too expensive, involve travel that takes you away from work or family…or maybe it’s too far beyond your comfort zone to talk to complete strangers.
I’ve been there. I know how much easier it is to correspond, where I can think about my responses and not whether I’ve spilled something on my shirt or if my face “looks wrong.” That first online conference changed my life and career.
Maybe you’ve been interested in a conference but hesitated because what you really want is to meet authors and publishers who speak the same faith language as you?
The Catholic Writers Guild has the answer for you: The Catholic Writers Conference Online!
Not only will we bring you excellent workshops on writing and marketing fiction and nonfiction, but we will do it with a Catholic angle, including theology, prayer, and fellowship that is uniquely for our faith.
Our 2018 CWCO is coming September 14-16 with webinar presentations. If you can watch YouTube or use a chat like Facebook Messenger, then you have all the skills you need to participate. We have presenters covering all aspects of writing, faith and literature.
I’ve gotten so much from online writing conferences. I hope you will, too. Use the buttons above for registering or sign up for more information using the form on the upper right. We hope to see you there!
