What people are saying

Smashwords is a longtime sponsor of the SFWC

Here is Smashwords Marketing Director Jim Azevedo with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Jose Antonio Vargas. Jim suggested Jose as a keynoter for the 2019 SFWC, then made the introduction that secured him. Thanks Jim!

Testimonial 2Thank you for including me in your amazing conference. I had multiple writers approach me and gush about the conference. Each used the word, “love.” They said they could feel the genuine love and support of everyone.” – Mark Coker, Founder of Smashwords

PublishDrive was a first-year sponsor in 2019

Our team visited the San Francisco Writers Conference and it was among the best conferences that we’ve attended. We were lucky enough to chat with some PublishDrive authors and got to hear about the exciting books they’re working on. We were also thrilled to award two lucky authors with gift certificates for a FREE year of Subscription Pricing. 🙂”  – Kinga Jentetics, Founder of PublishDrive

Stephanie Chandler at the San Francisco SF Writers Conference Authority Publishing Stephanie Chandler has been speaking at the SFWC for a decade

“This was my tenth year as a speaker at the San Francisco Writers Conference, and though I speak at many other events throughout each year, it remains my favorite for several reasons. SFWC fosters community with the attendees by encouraging agents, editors, speakers, and media pros to network at event mixers and meals. SFWC also attracts talented publishing industry professionals and writers alike. Each year, we see writers land book deals and reach goals they wouldn’t otherwise achieve without the conference. I’m proud to play a small part in this wonderful event.” – Stephanie Chandler, Founder of the Nonfiction Writers Association
