About the 2021 Pittsburgh Writing Workshop

ONLINE: The 2021 PWW is an Online Conference to keep everyone safe, on December 11, 2021. There is much more to say about this, but immediately you should understand 1) Online events are easy and awesome, and the online events we’ve done thus far have received wonderful feedback, 2) You do not have to be tech-savvy to do this, and 3) We are keeping all aspects of a traditional in-person event, including one-on-one agent & editor pitching, which will now be done by Skype or Zoom or phone.

WHAT IS IT?

screen-shot-2015-12-30-at-1-44-34-am.pngThis is a special one-day (online) “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, December 11, 2021. In other words, it’s one day full of classes and advice designed to give you the best instruction concerning how to get your writing & books published. We’ll discuss your publishing opportunities today, how to write queries & pitches, how to market yourself and your books, what makes an agent/editor stop reading your manuscript, and more. No matter what you’re writing — fiction or nonfiction — the day’s classes will help point you in the right direction. Writers of all genres are welcome. And even though this is the “Pittsburgh” Writing Workshop, make no mistake — writers from everywhere are welcome to attend virtually.

This event is designed to squeeze as much into one day of learning as possible. You can ask any questions you like during the classes, and get your specific concerns addressed. We will have literary agents onsite to give feedback and take pitches from writers, as well.

By the end of the day, you will have all the tools you need to move forward on your writing journey. The 2017, 2019 and 2020 Pittsburgh Writing Workshops were a success, and we are excited about the 2021 online event. Registration for the 2021 event is now OPEN.

This independent event is organized by coordinator Brian Klems & Chuck Sambuchino of Writing Day Workshops, with assistance from local Pittsburgh writing groups.
