Join us for 7 days of digital learning from May 27th to June 2, 2024.

The theme this year is “for the love of genre,” which will also be the theme for volume two of WordWorks in 2024. We want to celebrate our love for all genres and to glean the best learnings from each to strengthen our works regardless of what realm our writing inhabits. Whether you consider yourself a genre writer or not, there will be something for everyone. We look forward to welcoming you all digitally to the summit in May.

We are continuing our much loved format of multiple events spaced out over each day.  No sessions will be running concurrently.  We have 34 sessions scheduled including our keynote, workshops, gala, and writing sprints. Back by popular demand are also our Blue Pencil sessions from the Darling Axe.
