Ever stood in long lines at a conference, praying that by the time it's your turn, the editor you want to meet with will still have an appointment available, only to lose out? Not at CCWC! We provide the opportunity to choose pre-conference who you want to meet with for your virtual appointments. Once we’ve collected all the faculty information and posted it on the website, you’ll receive a form with space to note your #1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 choices of editors or agents. We ask you to also note your #6, 7, and 8 choices in case your top choices are already filled.
Deadlines - Appointment requests received through APRIL15 will be booked in the order of when you registered for the conference so you do NOT need to rush completing your Appointment Request Form. All appointment requests must be received by MAY 2. You must use the online Appointment Request Form. You will receive the link when you register for the conference and after the faculty bios and editorial needs have been posted. Please note that you must be paid in full for your appointments to be scheduled.
Group Appointments are 30 minutes long and scheduled during workshop periods and continuing sessions when the faculty member is not teaching. The conference schedule makes it impossible to offer appointments other than during these times, but please do NOT feel you need to miss an entire workshop to keep your appointments. Your workshop instructor will probably not even see if you arrive late or leave before the end of the virtual workshop or continuing session. And remember, you have three months after the conference to watch the videos!
You will be notified what appointments have been scheduled for you in an email prior to the conference. Prepare to meet with any one of the faculty members you have selected. We have hundreds of appointments to book and sometimes run into last minute faculty changes, so we are unable to tell you any earlier who you will be meeting with.
If you do not get your first choice(s), or if all the appointments you have requested are filled by the time we receive your appointment request form (although with the eight choices we ask you to note that is HIGHLY unlikely), do not despair. The Lord knows the plans He has for you and your work (Jeremiah 29:11).
Editorial Needs - You'll find the greatest editorial needs and overworked topics on the faculty bio pages (click Faculty/Markets)
It has been years since I attended my first writer's conference in Estes Park.
The virtual conference fanned the embers; I was encouraged and inspired.
I also learned how much more I need to learn to improve my writing for Jesus.
