Historical Writers of America (HWA) focuses on quality historical writing, research, submissions, the road to publication, and the life of a writer of historical fiction and nonfiction. The 2 1/2 day conference offers keynote speakers, workshops, book sales featuring books by conference presenters and participants, and more.
HWA provides a mix of sessions on the craft of writing, research, and era specific knowledge (food, clothing, language), publishing, and genre topics. Presenters will be offered discounted registration. The conference will be held at the Omni Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island June 7- 10, 2018.
Applications are reviewed by the HWA Program Committee. Selections are based on the appropriateness of the content for the conference program, the topic, and the presenter’s expertise on the topic. If your proposal is accepted, you will be asked to provide a color photo of yourself in jpg file format and brief bio. The deadline is March 15, 2018. Please email Soni Stokes with questions.
*I've received one question several times - so it's worth putting the answer here. If you wish to submit more than one topic proposal, it is best to submit the form once for each topic.*
