What is BlogHer Writers '11?

On October 20th & 21st, at the Hilton New York in New York City, BlogHer, Inc. and Penguin Group USA will host a new event designed for women who want to start on their path to publishing: BlogHer Writers '11.

For 7 years and over 15 conferences, one of the most popular topics at every BlogHer conferences has always been: how can I leverage the writing skills, talent and discipline I've developed through blogging to succeed in traditional publishing models too? We've hosted many individual sessions on the topic, but now we've decided to take answering this perennial question to the next level, by creating the opportunity for women to learn, connect and advance with an influential group of leaders in the field.

We are creating a space for 200 aspiring writers to attend BlogHer Writers '11, presented by Penguin, to meet role models and mentors...publishers, editors, literary agents and successful authors.

The Agenda:

Thursday, October 20th, BlogHer & Penguin will host a Welcome Reception, from 6-8PM, at the Hilton New York, preceding the conference.

Friday, October 21st, we will once again gather at the Hilton New York for a day of learning and networking. Programming includes:

  • Dedicated networking, with both peers and experts to help attendees build their support system
  • Keynotes sessions about what you need to know right now
  • Break-out sessions to go more in-depth on key topics: The craft of writing and the business of publishing

The day will be packed full of current, actionable, focused information. We hope you will join us to take your blog, your writing and your talent to the next level.
