A Writing Un-Conference

Writing conferences crop up all over the place every year. Most cover a lot of the same material — how to query, how to approach an agent, how to build a platform. A few focus more specifically on craft. Here’s one that sounds fully craft-driven, and actually offers time for writing!

The Writer Unboxed Un-Conference

The Writer Unboxed Un-Conference will kick off on Monday, November 3rd in Salem, Massachusetts, and span the week, culminating in a full-day workshop by Donald Maass on Friday, November 7th, and a cocktail party hosted by the Salem Literary Festival. Sessions will take place in The House of the Seven Gables Visitors Center, the Hawthorne Hotel’s Library and Ballroom, and–for those who want to write–space in one of the oldest membership libraries in the country, The Salem Athenaeum.

One thought on “A Writing Un-Conference

  1. It’s good to hear that writing time during a conference is important. I’m organizing my second semi-annual writers’ conference and I just added an hour long, guided writing exercise, and this post was confirmation that it was a good idea 🙂
