The San Francisco Writers Conference is a complex mix of attendees, presenters, agents, the people who come with them, hotel staff, sponsors, suppliers and the city’s people and businesses. This year’s conference celebrates the many cultures and worlds in the Bay Area with writers from China, India and Persia. The mission of the conference is to build bridges to better tomorrows for everyone connected to the conference by:
- Giving writers the information and inspiration they need to
- write and sell their books
- make them successful
- reach their literary and financial goals
- Providing a forum for writers, agents, publishers, and writers organizations
- Helping writers build the networks they need by creating a community of writers online and off
- Continuing to improve and expand how it serves the writers who spend their money and even more valuable, their time, to come to the conference
- Celebrating the Bay Area’s literary tradition, and its position as the country’s second most important publishing center
