The Emerald City Writers’ Conference Committee extends its warmest thanks to all the wonderful speakers, donors, sponsors, volunteers, participants, and Bellevue Westin staff whose hard work and generosity helped make ECWC such a successful event. We hope everyone learned a lot, met new friends, found new writing resources, powered up their careers, and had a terrific time!
The ECO contest is now open.
The preliminary list of workshops has been chosen.
Everyone thinks writers work in their pajamas and for once they will be right. October 19th from 8:30-11:30 we will be hosting the Jammies and Jewels Soiree! Don your most ridiculous pajamas, break out the tiaras and rhinestone finery and come dance the night away. There will be games, contests and prizes for jauntiest jammies and jazziest jewels. See you there with your bunny slippers and bodacious bling!
