February 12, 2015 (San Diego)—Writers of all levels are invited to join the Southern California Writers’ Conference and Retreat this weekend, February 14-16 at the Crowne Plaza Resort Hotel in San Diego. 

Learn secrets of how to get published and improve your writing craft at this annual event, which is founded and run by professional writers. The conference and retreat provides veteran and emerging talent with authoritative guidance to help distinguish those manuscripts that are ready for market consideration, having facilitated some $4 million worth of first-time authors’ book and screen deals.

With numerous practical workshops, read and critiques and more, the SCWC  is among the only conferences specifically tailored to empower writers of every level with the vital tools, networking and industry prowess needed to sell their work. The setting also provides opportunities to sidle up next to editors, agents, and executives on a one-on-one basis.

The SCWC's primary emphasis is on commercial, genre and literary fiction; narrative, prescriptive and practical nonfiction.
