Atlanta Writers Conference

This conference was a runaway favorite among our readers, earning more votes than any other event on our list; it’s also notable for introducing best-selling YA author Becky Albertalli to her agent, who went on to negotiate a publishing contract and a film deal for Albertalli’s novel Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

Where: Atlanta
When: May 3-4, 2019; also holds a fall conference in November (dates pending)
