19100-WDC-Porter-300X10018-20 August in New York City, Writer’s Digest Annual Conference:  “The Writer’s Digest Annual Conference offers everything you need to advance creatively and professionally as a writer—no matter what stage of your career. And it’s all brought to you by Writer’s Digest, the experts at nurturing and developing new writers for more than 90 years.

“Take a crash course on the real-world issues of getting an agent, getting published and making a life as a writer—from authors who made it happen.

“And remember that the conference’s Pitch Slam always sells out very fast, even before the overall conference does. The Pitch Slam is a rare opportunity to pitch directly to agents and editors actively looking for new talent to represent. It’s a high-energy experience that’s both an incredibly useful tool and a very tangible opportunity. Be your book’s advocate. After all, no one can tell its story quite like you. Other writers have successfully found representation at the Pitch Slam. Will you be this year’s success story?”

Register quickly here, and use code PORTERWDC17 to save $25 on your registration immediately.
