Conference January 27, 2018

The Agile Writer Conference

The Second Annual Agile Writer Conference is slated for January 27th, 2018 at the Holiday Inn at the Richmond International Airport.

Last year we launched our first writing conference. This year we’ve gathered experts to create 18 60-minute seminars on how to write, edit, publish and market your novel. We want to offer detailed advice that can be applied right away – what we call “actionable content.”


Featuring NYT Bestseller Lani Sarem

Sponsorships and Advertising Space Are Available
