A day after arriving home from SiWC, I’m sitting here, trying to write a post-Surrey post. Where to start?! The Surrey conference was full of so much awesome, and honestly, it’s still a bit of an exhausted, zozzilicious blur.
So what can I tell you? I think the top three highlights for me this year were:
- “Writing 21st Century Fiction”, a Master Class with literary agent Donald Maass
- Workshops on Dialogue and Motivation with author Eileen Cook
- Re-connecting with writer-friends. (I was delighted when one of those lovely friends won the “writing for young people” category of the SiWC writing contest! Yay, Trish! :D)
The conference was super-well-organized as usual. A thousand thank you’s to Conference Coordinator Kathy Chung, Contest Coordinator kc dyer, the SiWC board, and the amazing team of volunteers. You guys rock!

How do you get to SiWC? Any which way you can:
It all started with Thursday Master Classes, followed by keynotes and workshops Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. So much wisdom, encouragement, and inspiration from keynotes and workshops!
Of course, it wasn’t all about the workshops…. Pitches, parties, and more SiWC awesomeness:
And then it was over…or was it? The inspiration and learning at SiWC live on:
Re-entry into reality isn’t always easy:
But SiWC is so totally worth it….
I hope to see you at the next Surrey International Writers’ Conference!
