NW Writing Conference Turns 60

Back when it started, Pacific Northwest Writers Association members talked about typewriters and shipping manuscripts to New York publishers as well as how to plot the perfect story. Sixty years later, the organization’s annual conference still focuses on the craft of writing as well as the publishing business from the writer’s perspective.

The 2015 PNWA Conference will have 30 agents and editors taking pitches from writers. In addition, they will offer more than 70 workshops with several offered about the new “hybrid” author who does both traditional and indie publishing.

The 60th PNWA Writer’s Conference will be held July 16 to 19 at SeaTac Hilton Hotel and Conference Center. For more information, see their website.
