Daytime Panels & Craft Talks
Don’t miss the chance to hear our teachings staff (writers, agents and editors) share insights into the craft and business of writing. Topics are new each year, with the exception of our popular publishing panels, which feature agents, editors, and publishers providing insights and answering questions on this shifting landscape. Most panels and craft talks take place during the afternoon. For daytime events, admission is free to the public and no reservations are required. Join us!
