THE GREAT WHITE ART is what John Gardner called it, what it is that we, the writer, do. While artists we may be, today’s publishing realities mandate that in order to win over the needed, passionate advocates of our work, we must also become entrepreneurial authors. Entrepreneurial in spirit. Entrepreneurial in execution. Excellence in craft alone no longer cuts it.
Having facilitated some $4 million worth of first-time authors’ book and screen deals, the SCWC is devoted to writers of all levels working to become both exceptional authors and modern, entrepreneurial self-advocates. Through our uniquely tailored, inclusive programs the SCWC empowers writers with the vital recognition, encouragement, understanding and opportunities required to succeed in today’s ever-changing transmedia marketplace.
So whether you’re a writer just starting out, a writer looking to get professional feedback on your work, a writer at the ready, or a writer simply wanting to hang with other writers, join us for the 11th Annual Southern California Writers’ Conference *LA, Sept. 19-21, 2014.
Because a writer is a writer before, as well as after, publication. And today more than at any other time, publishing is personal.
