Are you looking for a list of writers’ conferences and book events for 2023 and beyond? Your friends at Black Château created this list to help authors, readers and publishing professionals plan their year.
Event planning is a process, so don’t be surprised if some of the events don’t have all the programming or details listed yet. The ones compiled here began announcing their dates, programming and registration fees in early 2023 and will likely make updates as the events draw near. Many writers’ conferences and book events are annual and happen around the same time every year, so the list can be useful even beyond 2023.
As the creators of the award-winning The BookFest, as well as the producers of the annual Jingle Books Holiday Party and the highly-anticipated Beach-Bound Book Bash, and as sponsors of great writers’ conferences like WriterCon, we know a thing or two about events. We hope you find this list useful as you plan which ones you may want to attend.
So, mark your calendars, start planning, and be sure to subscribe to the Black Château newsletter, The Black Château Times, to stay up to date on bookish events, news and information.
