Write Here Write Now
Join us for Write Here Write Now, a unique, collaborative one-day writing intensive for writers of all levels. You'll enjoy a fun, fast-paced day of mini-lessons, one-on-one author conferences, and lots and lots of writing. Includes lunch, coffee, tea, and a Wind-Down Wine afterparty, plus camaraderie with some of the Pacific Northwest's finest published authors.

**Note: If the tickets above are Sold Out, and you'd like to be added to the wait list in case a spot opens up, please email us at: info@seattle7writers.org.

Over the course of eight creative, productive, resource-packed hours you will:

  • Attend keynote opening and closing remarks from bestselling and award-winning authors Jamie Ford and Laurie Frankel, with MC duties by Garth Stein

  • Take part in six author-led Mini Writing Lessons

  • Write for six sustained 45-minute blocks, designed to maximize productivity, alongside seasoned writers who will offer encouragement, support, and advice

  • Meet one-on-one with an author who will answer your writing questions, read your excerpts, troubleshoot your ideas, doctor your plots, or otherwise help you in a private 12-minute writers' consultation session

  • Share lunch and conviviality with fellow writers

At Seattle7Writers, we know that writers can help each other achieve great things. We firmly believe that writing (actually writing, not just learning about, talking about, or hearing about writing) is the key to becoming a better writer, which is why Write Here Write Now provides support, lessons, tips, prompts, and advice from friendly experts, combined with the good cheer of a room full of writers.

Mini Lessons and Writing Sessions
Each hour will begin with a 10-minute mini lesson by one of the Pacific Northwest's most successful authors, followed by a 45-minute writing block. Bring a project you're already working on, or write from the prompts we'll provide. Either way, we feel confident you'll go home with more pages (more good pages) than you'd imagined possible from a single, productive, inspirational day.

This Year's Lineup
In addition to Jamie Ford, our other teachers are: Andrea Dunlop, Dori Hillestad Butler, Kevin O'Brien, Kit Bakke, and Waverly Fitzgerald.

One-on-One Author Consultations
We will schedule you for a 12-minute session with a published author who will offer feedback on a short excerpt of your work, chat through ideas, plug plot holes, help with pitches or queries, and otherwise give personalized writing support.

Registration includes lunch, snacks, coffee and tea, and happy hour.

Registration is not refundable, but is transferrable if you make arrangements with Seattle7Writers directly. Please be in touch if you have any questions, before or after you register! Our e-mail address is: info@seattle7writers.org.
