THE NATIONAL WRITERS UNION'S
FIFTH ANNUAL NEW YORK WRITERS CONFERENCE

Saturday, February 13, 2016
National Writers Union Headquarters
256 West 38th Street, New York City

9 AM - 6:30 PM

* Lure new readers using proven techniques from nationally recognized literary trailblazer Troy Johnson.
* Defend your work by getting detailed information about protecting your copyright from Susan E. Davis, national contract advisor co-chair for the National Writers Union's Book Division.
* Learn insider tactics for increasing your discoverability from Miral Sattar, Founder & CEO of Bibliocrunch, the online platform for authors that caught the attention of the BBC, Consumers Report, and Forbes.
* Multiple afternoon sessions designed to offer 30-minute consultations with Poets & Writers' Bonnie Rose Marcus, editorial powerhouse Marcela Landres, President of Black Hawk Literary Agency LLC Jan L. Kardys, self-publishing guru Timothy Sheard, social media expert Jo Anne Meekins, Esther Cohen who will explain the advantages of nonprofit sponsorship (there are more than what many think), and professional graphic artist Lallan Schoenstein. You'll get to talk to all of them.

All this will cost you less than a large box of chocolates. Plus you'll get more than candy to eat. Conference fees include a continental breakfast, a delicious lunch from award-winning Comfort Foods, and a closing reception.

Register early. Space is limited to 75. Year after year our conference attendees filled every chair we have.

CONFERENCE REGISTRATION: $20 for union members, $25 for students (student ID required) and seniors (65 and over); $40 for general admission. If you join the NWU during the program you will receive a $20.00 discount.

To register and pay at the door, email: nwuny@nwu.org.
