So you want to be a Presenter...

The Surrey International Writers' Conference is renowned for having the most eclectic, interesting and erudite presenters around. Over the past two decades, the list of brilliant authors, speakers, and industry professionals who have presented at SiWC is impressive. If you would like to join their number, here are a few things to keep in mind:

MANY people from all elements of the publishing industry are interested in presenting workshops at SiWC. This conference has garnered its reputation from having GREAT teachers. We are very careful whom we select, and teaching/speaking experience is a must. The final decision is made by our Board of Directors, and invitations are always issued in writing.

If you would like a chance to be considered, please email our conference coordinator Kathy at with your proposal. Be sure to include your name, website, contact information including your location, and details about your experience as a presenter and details of the workshops you'd like to present or, if you're an agent or editor, whether you're interested in teaching and/or sitting on panels or prefer just to take pitches. We'll keep your proposal on file for board consideration when we have openings.
