San Francisco Writers For Change puts mission first

“It’s the only conference like it,” San Francisco Writers For Change Conference organizer Michael Larsen said recently.

This was his response to whether the conference should be held every year or every other year. Larsen is relentless in his conviction. Every year. It’s too important not to do every year.

“This is a huge public service,” he continued. “Nobody else in the world is doing this. Nobody.”

The nonprofit organization that puts on the four-day San Francisco Writers Conference, which includes more than 100 presenters and is known as one of the top writing conferences in the country, started this one-day event for no other reason than a sense of mission.

The critical details:

  • Saturday, September 12th, 2015
  • 8:30 am – 5:30 pm
  • First Unitarian Universalist Center of San Francisco

Writers for change. It’s a unique concept and a focus that is different from other conferences because the mission comes first. The book deals, the profits, the egos of the publishing business come second.

Here is information about the conference:

The Writing for Change Conference is devoted to bringing together agents, editors, authors, and publishing professionals in order to enable writers to learn about writing, publishing, marketing, and technology. You’ll come away knowing how to get your work published successfully, online and off.

You will have the chance to learn from and pitch your book to the presenters, and to get feedback on your work from freelance editors.

Last year I was honored to be given a scholarship to attend this conference. It became my introduction to the deep literary community of San Francisco, and the most important day I spent on my career in the entire year. This conference with its affordable price (just $79 if you register before the end of the month) and packed one-day schedule is a bridge into publishing for emerging writers who are concerned about change issues.

The conference has agents, editors, self-publishing experts along with a host of information for writers wanting to turn their passions and causes into books. Journalists, activists, academics and budding writers should come to this conference.

How many times have you been told, “you should write a book?”

This conference puts that dream into action in a way nobody else will. Nobody.
