About the 2020 Writing Workshop of San Francisco

For safety reasons, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Writing Workshop of San Francisco to Fall 2021. Sorry about this. If you are interested in being notified when a 2021 date is unveiled, keep an eye on our calendar here, which also lists upcoming online conferences that we are organizing in lieu of in-person events.



This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on October 3, 2020, at the Embassy Suites Airport San Francisco South. 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.

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 2016, 2018, and 2019 Writing Workshops of San Francisco were a success, and we are excited about the 2020 event. Registration for 2020 is now OPEN.

This independent event is organized by coordinator Kerrie Flanagan of Writing Day Workshops, with assistance from regional SF writing groups.
