The Writing Institute’s 5th Annual Publish & Promote Your Book Conference

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Saturday


If you’re ready to find an agent and present your book to the marketplace, join our community of writers, agents, editors, marketing, and public relations professionals at this unique one-day conference designed to get your book published! If you have a completed book, or are working on your draft, don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the publishing arena, build your network, and plan for the future of your writing.

In addition to panel discussions, participants can register for Pitch Sessions and discuss their book with up to three agents/editors for 10 minutes each. If you're thinking of attending a Pitch Session, consider signing up for one of our Prep For Your Pitch sessions, which will be held on Tuesday, June 12, Wednesday, June 20, and Friday, June 22, at 7 p.m. This is a great opportunity to refine your pitch. Prep For Your Pitch sessions are limited to a small group of writers and fill up very quickly, so sign up early. Registration for a Prep For Your Pitch session requires an additional $85 fee. Attendees of the Summer Seminar for Writers are eligible for a 20 percent discount on conference admission.

Conference admission is $425 per person. Space is limited—learn more and register.
