Central Coast Writers' Conference
The Cuesta College Central Coast Writers’ Conference (CCWC) has been helping new and established writers fulfill their dreams since 1984. Writing Life Magazine voted us the “Best Writers Conference in the West.”
The 2023 annual conference will be held on Saturday, October 14, and marks our 39th year as the premier event for writers in San Luis Obispo County. It would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. If you'd like to learn more about sponsoring this year's event (which is also 100% tax-deductible), please let us know and we'll email you more info shortly.
The theme of this year's conference is 'Content Creator Community' and our goal is to amplify the connection of content creators on the Central Coast and beyond including bloggers, podcasters, YouTubers, influencers, authors, narrators, journalists, artists, screenwriters, musicians, and of course - writers of all genres! As the medium for literary work has expanded beyond the book, content creators from all walks of life are encouraged to join us.
We're still lining up the sessions and speakers, but your registration will secure your spot (and save you up to 50%). The fee will be increased after we publish the schedule and as the event draws near. Included with your registration will be a printed program/workbook, lunch, and access to attend any sessions at the conference (no master classes this year).
Note: Currently, we do not plan to offer any online sessions or recordings. If this changes, we'll notify you (so be sure to sign-up for our email list below). Also, we do not plan to have any agent pitch breakouts this year, although we will be inviting several agents and plan to have a session or two specifically on finding an agent/publisher. Masks will be optional unless public health policies change.
