Nowhere else will you get this level of attention and feedback. 

  • This conference was amazing! It was supportive, informational, inspiring and exciting. It was also well-rounded and just a lot of fun!
    — Deborah Staunton, writer
  • This is my second Writers Work conference and each time I come, I leave inspired with clear actionable steps to take to make my writing better. Thank you Tracy for creating this amazing space for writers to come together and grow.
    — Sojourner Walker Williams, Writer
  • I felt so lucky to find the Writers Work Conference. It can be easy to lose your way as a writer in NYC, and to feel alone in both your struggles and successes. The Conference offered the opportunity to connect with other writers in a supportive, non-competitive atmosphere. It’s really rare to find a project that is so dedicated to helping people be pro-active about following their dreams.
    — Joanna Gurin, Playwright, Teaching Artist & Founder of BewilderArts
  • I strongly urge any and all writers to attend the conference and take part in all that Tracy creates. It’s one thing to WANT to be a part of something and another to actually take action and do it. I am thankful to be a part of this writing community and hope I can help it grow by urging my fellow writers to take part.
    — Josh Conrad, Author of Cyberworld

Make sure you're on the mailing list so that doesn't happen again.

Who is this Conference for?

Whether you have an idea or you have a manuscript, this conference is for you. The goal of this one-day event is to help you solidify your ideas and come up with a plan to make sure you achieve your goals. It doesn't matter what stage you are in -- you will get something out of this conference.

There are so many writing conferences. Why should I choose this one?

I started this conference series after reading reviews of other writing conferences I wanted to attend. The criticism I kept reading was that these events were too big, too expensive and too intimidating. I set out to create a conference that is intimate (capped at 30 guests) affordable, and supportive. You will have time to ask questions and share your ideas. You will get specific feedback on your ideas. You will receive advice from authors and you will get actionable tools to ensure your success. At this conference, you are the special guest.

What happens during this conference?

  • We start every conference with a creative writing exercise that will remind you how much fun you can have writing. These exercises are great for combatting writer's block and getting into a relaxed state of mind.
  • Some writers love outlining, others despise it. This workshop will give you tools for coming up with an easy outline that every writer will enjoy. This exercise is great for developing a story idea or helping you summarize a finished manuscript (which will help when you're querying an agent).
  • In small groups, we will focus on developing our stories and ideas. With probing questions, your group will help you consider all aspects of your writing to help you take it to the next level.
  • The difference between a dream and a goal is a plan. Learn real life tips for budgeting your time and holding yourself accountable so you can make real headway in your writing. Whether you have a full-time job or you're a full-time writer, this workshop will help you create a routine to ensure you reach your goals.
  • Hear from debut author M. Elizabeth Lee on what it was like to querying for an agent, handle a publishing contract and the publicity tour. Nothing's off-limits so ask all your questions. You can purchase her book, Love Her Madly, when you get a ticket to the conference and she will sign it for you.
  • There's lots more but you'll have to attend the event to find out!
