Registration is now open for 2023 Storyfest, the South Carolina Writers Association Annual Conference, Nov. 3-5, 2023.
Our in-person Columbia event offers something for writers of all levels — critiques and pitches, pre-conference workshops, Q&A panels, craft and publishing talks, keynotes, a slushfest, a queryfest, an open mic and more.
Want to pitch your writing project to editors and agents? Want to learn how to market your book? Hear about the publishing industry? Learn how to write a great short story, novel, poem or screenplay?
We’ve got you covered. We’ve invited more than 20 agents, editors, authors, poets, screenwriters and journalists to the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center for three days of inspiration, camaraderie and learning.
This year’s lineup includes National Book Award winner Jason Mott, the author of Hell of a Book and The Returned; Janisse Ray, the celebrated Georgia author of Ecology of a Cracker Childhood; Ashley Poston, the New York Times bestselling author of The Seven Year Slip and The Dead Romantics; and Columbia author Claire Jimenez, whose just-published novel What Happened to Ruthy Ramirez is a USA Today must-read title.
