Historical Writers of America Conference

Historical Writers of America Conference

OCTOBER 10—13, 2019
The conference programming will focus on supporting quality historical writing – fiction and nonfiction, research, the submission process, the road to publication, and the life of a historical writer. There will be a mix of sessions on the craft of writing and genre and era specific knowledge (food, clothing, language) as well as the business side of publishing including self/indie publishing, marketing and publicity and social media techniques. While many of the sessions are geared specifically to historical writing, this year the focus is on the craft of writing - in all genres.
Faculty (previous): Parris Afton Bonds, Larry Brooks, Jodi Daynard, Chris C.C. Humphreys, Jeff Kleinman, Melissa Snodgrass
