Write on the Sound (WOTS) Writers' Conference in Edmonds, WA, is one of the premier conferences in the Pacific Northwest. Offered the first weekend in October each year, WOTS offers a unique and affordable opportunity for writers of all levels to build on their knowledge of the craft, learn about a new genre, and explore the writing industry. Its limited size makes the conference an intimate experience, perfect for sparking creativity, sharing ideas and networking with other writers.

Join us in 2015 to help celebrate thirty successful years.Workshops on craft, marketing, publishing and specialty writing topics are available. Don't miss an opportunity to hear presentations by well-known speakers, have your manuscript reviewed by a critique expert or submit a short piece for the literary contest. You can also browse the on-site book shop and network with fellow writers and session presenters at a public meet-and-greet reception.

Plenty of time is made available to stroll along the waterfront or browse the shops and restaurants in the charming downtown. Join us this fall for Write on the Sound on the beautiful shores of Puget Sound in Edmonds WA.
