The Michigan Writing Workshop is Back on April 25, 2020 – Register now! via @BrianKlems #michlit #michiganwriters #motownwriters

We are happy to announce the 2020 Michigan Writing Workshop, a one-day writers conference on Saturday, April 25, 2020. This is our fifth conference, and we are excited about the event. My name is Brian Klems, and I am formerly a longtime editor with Writer’s Digest. I am coordinating the 2020 event.

Basic information about the 2020 MICHWW is below. The rest of the info can be found on the updated website:

If you want to register, simply reply and let me know — it’s as simple as that. I can send you registration instructions and a form. Thanks. (Sorry if you are getting this notice more than once. We just want to make sure we notify everyone.)


WHATThe 2020 Michigan Writing Workshop, a one-day writers conference in Livonia, MI (just outside of Detroit).

WHERE: Embassy Suites by Hilton Detroit Livonia Novi, 19525 Victor Pkwy, Livonia, MI 48152 (734) 462-6000

WHEN: 9:30 – 5:00, April 25, 2020

ATTENDING AGENTS: We have 10 attending agents and editors so far (and that number may grow), including a nice mix of agents who have never attended the event before. Every attending agent and editor is actively seeking new writers and projects now. See them all here on the website.

HOW TO REGISTER: Just reply back to me and say you’re interested. We will send you everything you need.

WHY ATTEND THE 2020 EVENT? The day is again jam-packed with classes and information on how to get an agent, how to get published, how to grow your audience, and more–including genre specific courses for sci-fi/fantasy, YA/MG, thrillers/crime/fiction, and more. You can pitch agents and editors who are actively seeking new clients right now. You can also meet other writers just like you, and make writing friends who will help you on your journey.

We at Writing Day Workshops are proud of our growing list of success stories, and hope you will be our next addition:

If you attended an event of ours in the past and either signed with an agent you met at the event, or signed with an agent following the conference and think the WDW event was a valuable experience on your writing journey, we’d love to hear from you. Your positive words mean a lot to us, and we can help promote you and your book(s).

PLEASE CONSIDER MENTIONING THE CONFERENCE TO OTHERS: If you know any area writers or writing groups who would be interested in the Michigan Writing Workshop, please consider letting them know. Any word-spreading you do — especially to local writing groups — is valuable and appreciated.

OTHER WDW EVENTS: If you’re interested in a conference but cannot attend this April 25 event, we have other one-day conferences around the country that we’re coordinating in 2020. See them all here:

Thanks again. Feel free to ask any questions you like. Thank you for your interest in the 2020 Michigan Writing Workshop

best,
Brian Klems and the WDW Team
