Take a Peek at Our Panels!

True, the 2022 Washington Writers Conference (May 13-14 in Rockville, MD) is a great place to network with fellow scribes and meet the agents who may get your book published. But it’s also an excellent chance to hear writing pros share their expertise!

In addition to our fabulous husband-and-wife keynote speakers — Susan B. Glasser, a staff writer for the New Yorker and a CNN global-affairs analyst, and Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for the New York Times and an MSNBC political analyst — we’ll gather dozens of other award-winning authors for a variety of insightful, entertaining panels. Here’s a peek:

Maybe you need help marketing your work — and yourself. In that case, try The Business of Writing,” “What Editors Are Looking For,” and “To Agent or Not to Agent?

Memoirists (aspiring or otherwise) won’t want to miss “Writing Your Life: Craft Workshop with Marita Golden,” Fictionalizing History,” and Personal Essay/Memoir.”

And if you’re totally new to the writing world? Welcome! We’ll see you at “The Writer’s Life: A Primer for New Writers and “Debut Writers.”

Other panels include “The Great Unknown: Documenting the World through Poetry,” “DC Narratives,” The State of the Short Story,” “Grammar Rebel or Rank Amateur? A Grammar Crash-Course with Ed Perlman,” and “Where Do I Go?: Research Panel.”
