Never Fear…WriteOnCon 2014 Is Here!

Keep calm and carry on, folks. We know the announcement is a little late this year, but WriteOnCon 2014 is happening, and it’s going to be awesome! Mark your calendars for August 26-27, and get those pitches ready, because we’re in the process of lining up a stellar list of Ninja Agents and Editors who are looking for the next big thing.

You’ll notice a few changes this time around. This year, we decided to put more focus on the things you tell us you love the most. You come to us for unprecedented access to agents and editors. We’re bringing the Ninja Agents and Editors to our forums in force. And we’ll also be holding a couple of live events to give you a chance to ask all your burning questions. We’re eliminating some of the things like blog posts and vlogs that didn’t generate as much interest—at least for this year. We’d love to hear what you think about this pared down WriteOnCon when it’s all said and done.

Over the next month, we’ll be cleaning up the site and the forums and finalizing the schedule. Keep an eye on this space or follow us on twitter (@writeoncon) or facebook (writeoncon) to stay up to date on the latest and greatest. Until then, get to work on those pitches, because the countdown has begun!

  1. This is wonderful news! A few writers and I were just discussing whether or not we thought there would be a conference this year. I’ve found it so valuable in the past. Thanks for putting the conference together again!

  2. So exciting! For the past week, I’ve been checking the site for this announcement, and now here it is :). This makes me especially happy because I’m off both days of the conference–every year before now I’d had to work–and the 27th is my birthday. Possibly a sign of good luck?

    Bring on WriteOnCon 2014! Oh, and if there’s anything I can do to help, just let me know.

  3. We’re glad you’re all glad. :) As for what you can do to help, we really appreciate all you do to spread the word! The announcement is late this year, so the more we can get people talking about it, the better!

  4. Yay! I’ve been on the lookout for the announcement. Can’t wait for the awesomeness to begin!

  5. Yes! I am so glad. I’ve been wondering about whether or not WriteOnCon would be back again this year. THANK YOU, in advance, for all the hard work you put into this. This online conference has been a powerful motivating force for me in my writing over the past few years.

  6. Doh! I have jury duty on the 26th! This is a nightmare scenario… ugh… oh well, I guess I’ll just have to have a bench warrant issued for my arrest… j/k… I guess I’ll go do my civic duty.

  7. Yay! With everything that’s going on, I forgot that WriteOnCon should be coming up. Not sure how much I’ll be able to catch as the new college semester starts the same week, but looking forward to it!

  8. This will be my third or fourth year participating in WriteOnCon and the conference has been a tremendous help to my growth as a writer. Some of the forum feedback as well as featured guests had such insightful writerly wisdom I was actually able to apply that new knowledge to my own path to publication. Happy to say I am now about to become a published children’s book author with the release of my first picture book by Anaiah Press in January 2015.

    Thanks to everyone at WriteOnCon for providing such a valuable resource to aspiring and established writers everywhere!

    Take care,

    Donna L Martin

  11. Hooray! Great news. I attended the very first WriteOnCon and every one since (as overdunne), and I have to say you folks do an amazing job of encouraging new authors and celebrating the writing process! Now agented, and with two published novels under my belt (one self, one traditional), I am one of your biggest fans! Can’t wait to see what 2014 holds. Keep up your fabulous work.


  12. Yippee! I’m so excited for this!!! It will be my 3rd year participating, and the event is something I look forward to all year!

  13. Ok, I am new to this . What type of stories are you all looking for. Can I still register for this?
