Tony Hillerman Writers Conference

The Tony Hillerman Writers Conference is a three-day workshop offering sessions devoted to the craft and business of writing. Although it began as a conference devoted to mystery writing, we now offer workshops for writers of all genres! 

Thanks to all who joined us for the 2013 Conference! Save the date for 2014: Nov. 6–8 at the Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza. 

Here's what a few of our attendees said about previous conferences:

“Perhaps the best writing conference I have attended. Focus was sharp and very helpful to new writers. The cast of experts was above what one often encounters. The conference exceeded my expectations. I loved it all!”

“This was one of the best conferences I’ve attended. The chemistry between attendees, panelists, and the venue was perfect.”

Q: Did this conference meet your expectations?
A: And how! Over the top!

“I loved the intimacy of the conference.”

“I appreciated the breadth of solid information offered at the conference.”

“It was interesting to learn just how swiftly e-publishing is growing and being accepted by established authors.”

“New info about self-publishing and tools/websites that support it were very interesting. I loved the full spectrum of topics – especially the non-fiction info." 

"The conference was a great learning experience!  All of the presentations were viable and fact-filled - a must for all authors who are in the learning process for different genres."
