    Keynote & Faculty

Join us for three packed days all about writers and writing. Meet industry professionals, learn from world-class faculty & keynotes, and connect with a community of writers.

What is the value of your words this year?

Will they take your established writing career to the next level? Will they break you in to the world of publishing? Will they put your story in the public eye to delight, inform, and influence the world? Will they simply start their journey as you experience your personal introduction to the craft and culture of professional writing?

Wherever your words take you in 2017, the Willamette Writers Conference is the premier stop on the journey. We've brought together teachers, speakers, writers, agents, editors and producers from across North America to create a world-class curriculum for beginning and advanced writers alike. We've also gathered a collection of editors, web designers, layout specialists and similar professionals who make their own living helping writers make their living. They'll be on hand to assess your work and advise you on what to do next.

Join the 48th Willamette Writers Conference. Your words matter.
