Sponsorship Opportunities & Advertising Rates

Willamette Writers isn’t just for writers.

Our conference offers professionals and organizations who serve the writing community some excellent ways to get their name out in front of the clients they serve:

Our conference offers 9 tracks of education topics over the course of three days, each hosted in different rooms. An Education Track Sponsorship turns one of those tracks from (for example) “Advanced Genre Topics” to “Advanced Genre Topics brought to you by Amazing Company.” This puts your name and message front and center for all attendees to see, and includes a long list of other perks:

  • Your name and logo prominently associated with one of our euction tracks
  • Your business promoted at the beginning of each of 10 classes within that track

 

Youth Scholarship Program

This is a new option we are making available this year. In the interest of involving more young writers in the industry of our craft, we are inviting local businesses to scholarship a college or high school student to attend.

For $500, you send one student to the conference for all three days. You get mentioned in the program, on our blog, in our social media, and verbally at a conference meal. You also get your logo and name on the back of a t-shirt the student wears each day.

And you get to contribute to the education of an up-and-coming writer. Who knows? He or she might mention you in a Pulitzer acceptance speech some day.
