Banff Writer's Conference



Experience the splendor and grandeur of the lush forest up in the rocky mountains while meeting influential editors and literary agents of the literary industry at the BANFF WRITER'S CONFERENCE. One on one consultations and small group workshops enable agents to discover new, or self-published, talented writers.
Self-published authors are encouraged to bring autographed copies of their novels to promote and sell.  A specific area will be set up for this purpose.
Special arrangements will also be made for authors published by small, mid-sized, and large publishing houses to promote and sell their autographed novels. 


Literary Agents attending the Banff Writer's Conference are actively seeking new authors and self-published authors.

We are also going to test a new method, cyber-phone-one-on-one consultations, for those writers who simply can't break away from their daily life to attend a writer's conference. Literary Agents and Editors attending the conference can view a writer's 20 page submission from our writer's conference on site computer while speaking to the author via phone (15 minute limitation).  These will be pre-determined, scheduled times.
