Will 2017 be your year to break through to publication?

Get one step closer to becoming a published writer by attending the 33rd annual SDSU Writers’ Conference, Jan. 20-22, 2017, at the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley.

Each year, more than 300 attendees from all over the world pursue their literary dreams and get direct feedback on their writing in 1:1 appointments with editors and agents. The three-day SDSU conference was among the first to pioneer these 1:1 appointments, giving writers unprecedented access to top-tier publishing professionals — many of whom interact with unpublished authors only through conferences.

Award-winning, best-selling, and thrilling keynote speakers:
R.L. Stine – One of the best-selling children's authors in history
J.A. Jance – Top 10 New York Times best-selling author
Jonathan Maberry – Best-selling author and five-time Bram Stoker Award-winner
Sherrilyn Kenyon – International and New York Times #1 best-selling author of fantasy, horror, and more

The conference takes place 1-9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20; 8:30 a.m. -7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21; and 9 a.m.- noon Sunday, Jan. 22. On-site registration begins at 11 am on Friday, with the first breakout session at 2:15 p.m.

For complete information, visit, email, or call (619) 594-2099.

This is a SDSU Research Foundation program.
