Register for NFWC 2018

Join us for the 8th Annual Nonfiction Writers’ Conference
May 2-4, 2018
Nonfiction Writers Conference - Gretchen Rubin KeynoteFeaturing Opening Speaker: Gretchen Rubin

We are thrilled that our opening session for NFWC 2018 features New York Times bestselling author Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project, Better Than Before, and The Four Tendencies.

Gretchen will share her perspectives on Happiness, Habits and Productivity for Authors. She will also explain what it was like to find out that her book was on the New York Times bestseller list, how that has impacted her career, and what is was like to get the call that Oprah wanted to interview her for Super Soul Sunday! As an attorney, writer, and podcast host, Gretchen has much to share with our nonfiction writer community. Learn more about Gretchen Rubin.

The Nonfiction Writers Conference is VIRTUAL
Attend from Anywhere!

Since 2010, the Nonfiction Writers’ Conference has taken the concept of the traditional in-person writers’ conference and turned it into a one-of-a-kind ONLINE experience. Featuring 15 speakers over three days, all sessions are conducted via teleseminar, which means attendees from around the globe participate via phone or Skype–NO TRAVEL REQUIRED!

Local phone numbers available across the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Sessions run May 2nd, 3rd and 4th from 9am PDT / 12pm EDT through 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT each day. Access the full agenda here.

NFWC PAST SPEAKERS

Why is NFWC Delivered Via Teleseminar?

We have purposely maintained the teleseminar format because of the ease of use. Not only can people from around the globe attend, but you can participate in whatever way is most convenient for you.

Some prefer to listen in live, some listen to the event recordings while in the car or at the gym. Transcripts are also available, depending on the registration level you choose.

NFWC is NOT a Pitch-Fest

This is absolutely not one of those telesummits that gives big promises and then lacks value. We carefully hand-select our speakers and ask each to deliver a content-rich lecture, followed by Q&A with our live audience.

Year after year we have a high percentage of repeat attendees–many who weren’t sure they’d like the online format, but ultimately discovered that they appreciate the convenience of attending from home and on their own terms, without the time and expense involved in traveling.

 “The Nonfiction Writers Conference exceeded my expectations from the Keynote with Seth Godin to the last afternoon with content rich presentations about kindle book sales and Social Media for authors. My notebook is full of actions to take. Bravo to Stephanie Chandler for understanding the needs of nonfiction authors.” – Amy Lou Jenkins BSN MFA Author, Every Natural Fact: Five Seasons of Open-Air Parenting. Editor, www.JackWalkerPress.com

“I had my doubts about paying money for a virtual conference conducted entirely by telephone, but I’m glad I signed up. Captivating speakers, combined with intelligent questions from listeners and Twitter chatter during the sessions, made this a truly engaging conference.” – Julia Goldstein, https://jlfgoldstein.com


If you’ve never attended an event like this, we think you’ll find that the convenience and affordability combined with the powerful content delivered by carefully chosen speakers will make it one of the best investments of your author career. Plus, we offer a full money-back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose!xx

There’s never been a better time to join NFAA–and attend NFWC!

NFWC is the best investment I make each year in my nonfiction author career. The caliber and accessibility of the presenters is unusually high, the topics well chosen and diverse, and I can honestly say that at least half of the presentations would have been worth the cost of the whole conference alone.”
– Mary Shafer, Devastation on the Delaware, 55Flood.com

“Where else can you gain so much valuable information in so little time? I’ve attended Non-Fiction Writers Conference three years running and it has been well worth my time every year.
– Karyn J. Taylor, Editor: TWO STEPS FROM GLORY: A World War II Liaison Pilot Confronts Jim Crow and the Enemy in the South Pacific by Maj. Welton I. Taylor, Ph.D.

“The Non-Fiction Writers E-Conference is a wonderful event! I’ve attended many in-person writers conferences over the years at considerable expense. It was great to be able to be at home in my office and just participate in the sessions that most interested me — at a very reasonable cost!
– Doreen Pendgracs, Author of “Chocolatour: A Quest for the World’s Best Chocolate,” chocolatour.net
