Annual Local Conferences

Writer's workshop for all writers. Former workshops featured agents and editors from Ace/Roc Books, FinePrint Literary Management, Donald Maass Literary Agency, Poisoned Pen Press, Leap Books, The Knight Agency and authors including JA Konrath, Michael Bracken and Uwe Stender.

Confluence is a small, friendly conference focused on the literature and art of Science Fiction and Fantasy, with many award winning authors and editors who enjoy meeting and talking with Confluence members.
We hold panel discussions and talks that will broaden and deepen your appreciation of Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Learn about writing and publishing. Meet other teens who share your interest in writing speculative fiction. Talk about short stories, novels, and films. Have your submission story critiqued. Brainstorm new story ideas, write a first draft, receive feedback, and rewrite. Attend readings by the authors. Do a public reading. Learn about submitting for publication, and send off your story at our manuscript mailing party.
