Catholic Writers Conference Online
Catholic Writers Conference Online - March 11-13, 2016

CWCO The Catholic Writers Conference Online is happening in 2016!

The CWCO is a go for March 11-13, 2016. This will be an intense, one-weekend-only conference with authors and editors representing the gamut of writing and Catholicism. We'll also have pitch sessions for your chance to meet with editors and pitch your book. We have big changes this year, so please read on.

Tell Us What You Want – Survey Through August
During August, we are conducting a survey to find out the most desired topics so we can tailor the conference to your needs. If you’ve not filled it out, please follow this link. You’ll help make this experience better for everyone.

In September, we will open up registration. Follow this link, and we’ll let you know when it opens.

All new, easier format!

Instead of the chats and forums of the past, we are entering the 21st century with webinar software. We think this will be a terrific asset because not only will you be able to listen to our awesome speakers, you will get to see slideshow presentations, examples, even video as our presenters plan. The chat feature will be separate, so it’s not distracting from the presentation, and there will be set Q&A. Karina Fabian has been attending webinars for a couple of years now and presents herself and says this the experience will enhance everyone’s learning.

You won’t need to download anything, just register and click on the links. You’ll even get periodic reminders. We’re super-excited to be able to bring back this amazing conference in a format that will be easier and richer for everyone.

One Weekend Only – No Forums
Over the past few years, we’ve experimented with different scheduling, and have found the more we spread it out, the less participation we get. Forums the past two conferences were sparsely attended. Since our presenters are busy people, too, we’ve decided to concentrate on live presentations as opposed to homework-based forum classes and to compress everything into 3 days. So get those freezer meals ready and buy a good cushion for your chair because we’re going to have an intense weekend!

Nominal Registration Fee
This year, we will be charging a small fee. There are several reasons for this. First, we need to pay for the webinar software. Second, we’d like to give our coordinators and presenters a stipend. Finally, we have had hundreds of people register each conference, yet only a dozen show up for chats and even fewer for the forums, which isn’t fair for the presenters who put a lot of time into their lessons.

Most conferences run hundreds of dollars just for attendance. Single webinars can run $25 -$100. We’re thinking of charging $10 - $50 for the entire conference, but we want your opinion. What would you pay or can pay for a full writing conference by leaders in the Catholic writing world? Fill out the survey and let us know what you believe is a reasonable price.
