Click here to register now to attend the May 3-4, 2019 Atlanta Writers Conference, at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel.


The Writer magazine’s “runaway favorite” among voters, our twice-yearly Atlanta Writers Conference was voted the “Best Writing Conference in Georgia”–with more votes received than any other conference in the U.S. In their February 2019 issue (see image), the magazine also acknowledges Becky Albertalli, one of our many conference success stories.

A humble “thank you” to everybody who cast their vote for the Atlanta Writers Conference!

  • In search of an agent or a publisher
