The theme this year is “for the love of genre.” 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.
