HWA Annual Conference

The Woodlands, Colonial Williamsburg, VA

October 10 - 13, 2019

About the Conference

The conference programming will focus on supporting quality historical writing – fiction and nonfiction, research, the submission process, the road to publication, and the life of a historical writer. There will be a mix of sessions on the craft of writing and genre and era specific knowledge (food, clothing, language) as well as the business side of publishing including self/indie publishing, marketing and publicity and social media techniques. While many of the sessions are geared specifically to historical writing, this year the focus is on the craft of writing - in all genres.

  • "Master Class" pre & post conference workshops
  • Agent Pitches
  • Keynote dinner
