The Writer’s Hotel Virtual Weekend Conferences are generative and include Genre Labs (generative workshops) and dynamic craft and publishing lectures, curated by Directors Shanna McNair and Scott Wolven of The Writer’s Hotel NYC Writers Conference. We take writers and their writing to the next level.

TWH Weekend Conferences are tailored to writers who are serious about craft and who also want to bond with their fellows and enjoy virtual readings each night. The program is designed to provide writers with the tools and information they need to take their work to the next level. From the creative side of writing to the business end of publication, The Writer’s Hotel Weekend Conferences cover it all. Please see our full schedules for each program for more details.
