With over 1,000 writers conferences throughout the country each year, the La Jolla Writers Conference (November 6-8, Sa Diego, CA) is truly one of a kind.
Now in its 15th year, the LJWC boasts an amazing faculty of New York Times bestselling authors, agents, and business and creative faculty.
But there is one component that truly makes the faculty unique: every faculty and staff member, from the keynote speakers to the staff members helping at registration, donate their time for the weekend. They are giving their time, energy, and expertise back to the writing community.
This creates an incredible environment dedicated to fostering a supportive and intimate environment where writing can truly focus on improving their craft and pursuing publication.
