Pikes Peak Writers Conference 2020

 

Please see this PPWC cancellation notice.

With COVID-19 forcing the Pikes Peak Writers Conference and most other conferences across Colorado to close down this year, Pikes Peak Writers joined forces with Northern Colorado Writers and Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers to create the Colorado Writers Collaborative. This joint venture hits YouTube September 1-30, 2020. Check out free video presentations from agents, editors, and authors on the craft, business, and life of writing as well as current hot topics all writers should pay attention to. You’ll learn from NYT bestselling authors like Rachel Howzell Hall, John Gilstrap, and Bob Mayer; editors like Tiffany Yates Martin and Anita Mumm; plus Colorado powerhouses like Margaret Mizushima, Stant Litore, and Stuart Horowitz. Over twenty-five contributors have volunteered their time and effort to provide the writing world with some education, inspiration, and motivation during this time of safer-at-home. Check out Colorado Writers Collaborative for free September 1-30, 2020 on YouTube!

 

About Pikes Peak Writers Conference

Pikes Peak Writers Conference has a welcoming, friendly atmosphere filled with the topics that interest you the most, and perhaps a few topics that you will become interested in after. You will be surrounded by industry professionals and other dreamers who are eager to learn, connect and network. Our three-day conference is full of in-depth workshops, best-selling keynote speakers, opportunities for one-on-one time with agents and editors, the chance to read your work aloud for constructive critique, and the opportunity to socialize with fellow writers while building your network.

Your conference registration fee includes Friday’s welcome lunch and dinner, Saturday’s continental breakfast, keynote luncheon and The Zebulon Awards banquet, and Sunday’s continental breakfast and farewell luncheon. Additional Saturday Zebulon Banquet tickets are available to purchase for spouses and guests. Faculty members will host lunch and dinner tables so you have the opportunity to chat with that editor, agent, or author you’ve been dying to meet. The exceptional keynote speakers will make each meal an unforgettable experience.
