James River Writers Conference 2021

October 8, 2021 @ 9:00 am - October 10, 2021 @ 9:00 pm EDT

The 19th annual James River Writers Conference takes place from October 8-10, 2021. This annual gathering, usually in Richmond, Virginia, attracts prize-winning authors, highly regarded editors, and literary agents from around the country to share their wisdom about writing and publishing.

Established in 2003, this event attracts 350 to 400 writers.

This year’s conference, like the 2020 edition will be online.

“After a well-received virtual conference last year, we’re returning with many of the same elements that have made it a successful, sold-out event for the writing community year after year: agent one-on-one meetings, Master Classes, and our First Pages Panel with literary agents. And, we also have a few new elements in the online space, like Grammartopia®! In addition, we’ve included opportunities for networking and fun engagement in the evenings, knowing that community is at the heart of everything we do. Whether you’re just starting out on your writing journey, or a seasoned professional, there’s something for everyone. We hope you’ll join us online this year!”


Early bird registration fees range from $85 – $199.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
