In the Trenches With the Writer Conference 2023

After a 10 year hiatus we’re back and better than ever! In the trenches with the writer is designed to help you take your writing to the next level, we have a weekend of intensive, hands-on workshops taught by best-selling authors and industry professionals.

If getting published is your goal, we have editors presenting workshops on craft, industry and the how-tos of getting published. They will also be holding a panel discussion to address all your burning questions about the publishing process. Best of all, they will taking pitch appointments for those who want them!

Not all the learning is in the classroom. When you’re not attending workshops you’ll be able to hang-out with other writers, successful authors and editors in a fun and creative atmosphere.

Our conference is multi-genre and is designed to cater to the beginning writer all the way to the most seasoned veteran. After attending our last conference best-selling author Jade Lee exclaimed, “I can’t believe how much I learned.”

We are also bringing back the Evie Awards. Contests judged by other authors and editors. The prizes will be announced at our big awards dinner on Saturday night. Get your submissions in early!

This year we will also be adding exciting a-la-carte workshops, like small group voice acting classes by television, movie, animation and video game star Carlos Ferro, after which you’ll be taking home your own reel!
