Conference 2024 Schedule

Updated: Mar 14

You may have heard the rumors... they're true! We finally took the plunge and planned a fully accessible Writing Conference for you. This free, virtual collaboration is 40 presentations, created just for you and donated by industry professionals who want to see you succeed. We're excited to talk and share this with you this weekend, March 15-17, on YouTube and Discord. Presentations will be available indefinitely but presenters are only available this weekend to chat!

Here's the basic schedule so far. Throughout this week, I'll provide more detailed information about each talk and presenter (plus handouts and discounts!) so you can prepare. On average, these videos run 25-35 minutes; you'll have roughly 15 minutes between each video to take care of necessities and chat.
