San Francisco Writers Conference
The San Francisco Writers Conference is one of the most relaxed and inspiring writers gatherings I’ve ever seen. Celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2018, the conference will go down the hill and move to the Hyatt Regency from 2019.
I think this is an excellent follow up location of the majestic Mark Hopkins on top of Nob Hill. Having lead writers Eyespiration photo walks before, the new location will make Yoga for the Eyes possible, a daily mindfulness photo walk at 6:15 am (sunrise).
From 2019 the fab Laurie McLean will be director of SFWC, leaving all of us thanking the grand Michael Larsen and Elizabeth Pomada for doing an excellent job, on getting the SFWC started and as well on improving each superb edition.
From hardly any room for self pub and e-books, at today's conference all you need to know on how to publish your book (and sell them by the truckload on Amazon - Penny Sansivieri) is available. It took the SFWC only a few years to embrace many new ways of publishing.
Next to excellent keynote speakers, great food and staff, all presentors and workshops are really worthwhile . Over the years the best part of SFWC, networking with agents, fellow authors and other writing pros, never changed.
The new event location will offer even more possibilities to connect with like minded friends. Also San Francisco is really a cool city with so much to do and see, even when you are in town on your own. See you!?
Mindfulness and meeting new people during President’s Day weekend, combined with many tools on how to become a better writer and publish your book, make SFWC the best conference for authors.
