    VWC Symposium Sponsorship & Advertising Opportunities

    Sponsoring the Virginia Writers Club 2020 Symposium

    The Virginia Writers Club (VWC), founded in 1918, is one of the oldest organizations of its kind in the United States. Comprised of chapters throughout the Commonwealth, the Virginia Writers Club is dedicated to fostering the art, craft, business and advocacy of the literary arts.

    In 2020 VWC will host its tenth annual Navigating Your Writing Life: Percolate – Regurgitate – Tittivate –Publicate (Think-Write-Edit-Publish). This year, due to the Cornonavirus, the event will be held online over two days, Saturday, August 1 and Sunday, August 2, 2020, and feature eight workshops on topics related to the art, craft, and business of writing for writers of all levels.

    This year’s keynote speaker will be Austin Camacho, author of the Hannibal Jones Mystery Series about a Washington DC-based private eye, the Stark and O'Brien international adventure-thriller series, and the stand-alone detective novel, Beyond Blue. Camacho is also editorial director for Intrigue Publishing, a Maryland small press. He is a past president of the Maryland Writers Association, past Vice President of the Virginia Writers Club, and is an active member of Mystery Writers of America, International Thriller Writers and Sisters in Crime.

    Sponsoring the symposium is a fun and impactful way to promote literacy in the Commonwealth as well as offer the attendees information about goods, services, and opportunities for writers and those interested in writing.
