2024 Catholic Writer Conference Online

About This Writers' Conference

CWCO2024 is the best writing conference by Catholic writers for Catholic writers. We cover all aspects of writing - fiction and non-fiction - from ideas to marketing. Experienced authors, editors, and publishers share their wisdom in this intense 3-day conference. There's also time for networking and prayer.

Pitch sessions give authors with submission-ready manuscripts the chance to connect with interested publishers. We offer these to conference attendees the week following the conference.
