2020 Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

It’s with sadness that we announce the 2020 Washington Writers Conference is canceled. Please read the full announcement here. Contact us at [email protected] with questions.


We are offering a select number of sponsors the opportunity to participate in our conference and reach an estimated 350 (based on our 2019 numbers) educated, enthusiastic participants. 

This year, for the first time, we offer two different levels of participation. We are also willing to customize sponsorship opportunities to meet your needs.

Based on the overwhelming response at our sold-out 2019 conference, we have expanded to the more spacious second-floor ballroom level of the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. As a result, our sponsors will have table displays in the high-traffic main lobby.

Level One:

Cost: $300

Level Two:

All of the above, plus a one-month advertising buy on the Washington Independent Review of Books’ homepage:

The Washington Independent Review of Books boasts:

Cost: $550

Our 2019 sponsorship opportunities — as well as our conference itself — sold out, so don’t wait to confirm your sponsorship!

For more information, or to confirm your sponsorship, contact [email protected]. In the subject line, please write “2020 Sponsorship.”

We look forward to seeing you on May 8-9, 2020, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center!
