Because of the pandemic, we don’t yet know if we will be holding this conference in NYC or on Zoom. We will provide updates when we know more (and issue refunds for those who want them). In the meantime, check out our writing/publishing Zoom talk show, Inside Writing.
Gotham Writers Conference
2019 Teaser

The Gotham Writers Conference will take place October 16-17, 2020 at the Ace Hotel on 29th and Broadway.

It will unfold like this:

Panels and Presentations (Day 1) — Take a peek behind the publishing curtain with five eye-opening and entertaining panels and presentations. This is for people who are ready for publication or just gearing up to enter the publishing process. Plus, a happy hour.

Pitching Roundtables (Day 2) — Each table will have two agents and a group of pre-selected writers with book projects. You spend the day with your table—pitching, reading pages, and discussing your work. There will be tables specializing in: mainstream/literary novels, genre novels, middle grade/young adult novels, picture books, and nonfiction books. Plus, a happy hour.

Anyone can attend the Panels and Presentations, but you must apply and be selected to participate in a Pitching Roundtable.
