Every June since 1972, writers from around the world have gathered at the Santa Barbara Writers Conference to rub elbows with fellow writers, well known authors, and publishing professionals. You’ll participate in a magical week of intensive work focused on craft, marketing, and networking.

The full conference June 16-21, 2019 includes:

• 5 full days of workshops led by 30 talented teachers

• One-on-one manuscript consultations • Afternoon speakers and panels

• Opportunity to register for agent appointments

• 5 evening keynotes by well-known authors

• Book signings and chances to meet author-speakers

• Opening night banquet on Sunday

• Poolside cocktail reception • Awards banquet on Friday evening

• A week of networking, support and camaraderie

SBWC likes to brag about our successful alumni – Fannie Flagg, Spencer Johnson, Gayle Lynds, Monte Schulz, Gillian Roberts, Catherine Ryan Hyde, and Christopher Moore, to name just a few.

Join us this summer for our 47th anniversary, June 16-21, 2019, and become a part of this ongoing literary legacy.

See you there,

Grace Rachow, SBWC Director
