Writer’s Digest Novel Writing Conference in Pasadena in October

For the past two years, San Diego Writers and Editors Guild has been a promotional partner for Writer's Digest's Novel Writing Conference in southern California. This year, again, the Guild is functioning in that role. Below is information from Writer's Digest about their 2018 Conference in Pasadena.

Join Writer's Digest in sunny Pasadena and give your novel the attention it deserves!

Writer’s Digest is excited to bring the third Annual Writer’s Digest Novel Writing Conference back to Pasadena this fall—October 26-28, 2018.

Last year’s conference was a transformative experience for many of our attendees—from aspiring novelists to those working on their second or third books—and we’re working behind the scenes right now to ensure this year’s program offers the most dynamic, informative and inspiring lineup yet, no matter what state your novel is currently in.

Here’s what some past attendees told us about their experiences:

“This was my first conference and I found it incredibly helpful. I would definitely like to attend another. I particularly liked the breadth of topics available every hour. Wonderful!” ”
–Amy H. | 2017 Attendee

“The venue was excellent! The space was nice, and there were restaurants within walking distance. It also felt like a safe place. I really enjoyed listening to the keynote speakers. Thank you for putting on such an excellent program. It was wonderful!”
–Leslie K. | 2017 Attendee

“I attended the WD Novel Writing Conference in 2016. I have attended conferences for professionals in other fields for over 30 years, and this one stands out. I felt the range of coverage, the attention to detail, the support of the staff, and the "generosity of spirit" of the presenters was impressive. I felt like I connected with my tribe.”
–Linda H. | 2016 Attendee
