The 2022 virtual Las Vegas Writers Conference was a resounding success. We’ve developed a reputation as one of the best writers conferences in the nation, as mentioned in several top notch writers publications. It’s well deserved. As an attendee to every live event from 2005 up to 2019, I can attest to that. I’ve seen this conference grow, change, and go through many different versions over the years. We have a reputation and a high standard.

In this article, I won’t go into too many details except to outline some of the reasons why this conference has gained its reputation. Over the next few weeks, I may be revisiting some of the articles from the past that are relevant to the conference. They’re more detailed and the info in them hasn’t changed all that much. Some things you may hear repeated and that’s because these things are an integral part of our success.



One reason the Las Vegas Writer’s Conference is such a success is because of the size.

It’s an intimate online Zoom setting. We’re limited in size to a smaller group which means everyone gets to interact with everyone.


There’s only one price. Once you pay the conference fee, that’s it. If you want to chat with any agent, publisher, or author, it’s included in the price of admission.


Every attendant and faculty member is accessible through the chat window.

Not only do you have ample opportunities to set up private appointments (sessions) with agents and publishers, you interact with them during classes. Since it’s online, there’s no one with a “possee” that accompanies them to a signing booth, does their scribbles on a book or two, does a couple of pitches and then leaves. Since there’s no physical location and no travel, it’s much more convenient for them and they’re there for the duration.


There are a variety of classes, the meat of the conference, that cover every aspect of the publishing and writing world. From writing to editing to marketing, there are almost always classes to cover everything you can think of and learn from. These classes are often taught by the very people you come to pitch your work to.


Every year, writers get successful pitches and queries to agents and publishers. While the ultimate return may be low, once in a while someone strikes gold. The chances of obtaining an agent are much higher with a virtual face-to-face meeting than a random letter in the mailbox. Each year, someone obtains a big-time agent or publisher from our conference.


The Las Vegas Writers Conference is one of the best in the nation for many reasons. As a writer, you should attend at least one if you’re serious about getting published, whether traditionally or self-published. Yeah, even self-published authors can get a lot of value out of this conference. There’s plenty to learn for everyone, as nobody is excluded from the mix.

Happy writing!
