About Pikes Peak Writers Conference

Pikes Peak Writers Conference has a welcoming, friendly atmosphere filled with the topics that interest you the most, and perhaps a few topics that you will become interested in after. You will be surrounded by industry professionals and other dreamers who are eager to learn, connect and network. Our three-day conference is full of in-depth workshops, best-selling keynote speakers, opportunities for one-on-one time with agents and editors, the chance to read your work aloud for constructive critique, and the opportunity to socialize with fellow writers while building your network.

Your conference registration fee includes Friday’s welcome lunch and dinner, Saturday’s continental breakfast, keynote luncheon and The Zebulon Awards banquet, and Sunday’s continental breakfast and farewell luncheon. Additional Saturday Zebulon Banquet tickets are available to purchase for spouses and guests. Faculty members will host lunch and dinner tables so you have the opportunity to chat with that editor, agent, or author you’ve been dying to meet. The exceptional keynote speakers will make each meal an unforgettable experience.
