Writing at Work

Writing @ Work Conference

Writing at Work

Writing @ Work is a gathering of working writers, world-class editors, publishers, agents, and students, coming together to share insights on the writing life and how to make it work. This year’s conference features Gary Fisketjon, legendary editor to Cormac McCarthy, Raymond Carver, Jeanette Winterson, and Haruki Murakami and vice president of Knopf Publishing, as well as Sarah Bowlin, Agent at Aevitas Creative Management. Panels and discussions include topics ranging from writing in the West and the basics of getting published, to women’s perspectives on life and craft. It’s an afternoon of community and collaboration for anyone interested in the power of writing and how to build a life around it.
