The Japan Writers Conference is a free, annual conference open to all. Since 2007, JWC has attracted English-language writers in a variety of fields for a weekend of sharing ideas and experiences on the art, craft and business of writing.
Past JWC presenters have included well-known translators, novelists, poets, journalists and so on. Journals including The Font, Cha, Tokyo Poetry Journal and Kyoto Journal have also participated, as have publishers Fine Line Press and Isobar Press.
For JWC 2022 some of the presentations include storytelling and poetry workshops, how to craft the perfect pitch for a publication, the intricacies of writing a memoir, a poetry reading by Isobar Press and much more. Full program here.
This year, because of health concerns, you must register if you plan to attend JWC. Please click here to register and fill out a health monitoring form for one week before the conference. While the conference is still completely free, you must register by October 8.
