New for NFWC 2019: All Conference Sessions Delivered in Webinar Format!

webinar format - nonfiction writers conferenceBeginning with the 2019 Nonfiction Writers Conference, all event sessions will be delivered in webinar format. This means you can watch a visual presentation on your computer while you listen to each lecture. OR, you can opt to watch a replay of each session at a later time/day, download the recording to listen on the go, or read the transcripts. Options depend on the registration level you choose.

For those who prefer to participate by phone, this option is still available, too!

Since we launched in 2010, we chose to use the teleseminar format because of the ease of use. But technology has evolved and it’s easier than ever to participate in a webinar. We are excited to bring this technology to our NFWC attendees in 2019–and we promise it will be easy to access, and a rewarding experience for attendees.

NFWC is NOT a Pitch-Fest

This is absolutely not one of those annoying telesummits that boasts big promises and then lacks value. We carefully hand-select our speakers and ask each to deliver a content-rich presentation, followed by Q&A with our live audience. Sessions are delivered LIVE, not pre-recorded (with an occasional exception if a speaker has a conflict).

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.

Attendee Feedback

“The presentations were packed full of practical, monetizable writing ideas and “maps.” My eyes were opened to new worlds of online writing publications and resources that I’m confident will increase my income. The Ask-a-Pro sessions were worth the cost of admission alone! I received high-level, actionable feedback and advice for my books, speaking engagements, online courses, and website. The Nonfiction Writers Conference has set my writing business on a new trajectory!
– Lynn Hare, The Quest for Self-Forgiveness, www.lynnhare.com
What a joy to finally have a resource for workshops focused on non-fiction writing! Each speaker was not only motivating, but helpful, offering specific information about their area of expertise rather than just generalities. I finished with not only a lot to think about, but more important, a clear idea of where and how to get started on the next steps.”
– Gail Underwood Parker, It Happened in Maine, The Caring Heart Speaks, More Than Petticoats: Remarkable New Hampshire Women, Hospital Memoirs
 
It was awesome! So grateful for all the information shared and for the wonderful speakers, including connecting with different experts in the 15 minute private sessions. Came at exactly the right time in my book writing development.”
Miriam Racquel Feldman
 
My 3rd year attending and NFWC continues to deliver excellent speakers and content. The information and handouts coupled with listening to the speakers gives any author an exceptional take-a-way to apply and succeed.”
– Rosemary Augustine
 
Excellent conference! No travel, fair price, and most important: Valuable info for writers in all aspects of writing and the business of writing at all stages of their careers. This is not a bunch of people just peddling their own businesses and services under the guise of a writers’ conference. I also highly recommend the private ask-a-pro sessions.”
– Lori Shandle-Fox, laughingisconceivable.com, Laughing IS Conceivable

Ask a Pro - Free Consultations with Publishing Industry ProfessionalsFree Ask-a-Pro Sessions

Attendee Feedback:

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
