Cleveland Rocks Writing Conference

For Romance and Other Fiction Writers

A free all-day conference for fiction writers. While focused on romance writing, the conference also features general craft talks and writer wellness information benefiting all fiction writers.

The Cuyahoga County Library’s William N. Skirball Writers’ Center is partnering with Northeast Ohio romance writers to bring you the Cleveland Rocks Writing Workshop. Online registration will open at noon on Saturday, April 4, 2020. If you have questions about the event, please contact the event coordinators at

Check-in the day of the event begins at 9:00 a.m. with a light breakfast and hot drinks available. The event will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Complete details will be posted soon. 

This event is FREE.

Mindy McGinnis is our featured keynote speaker. Mindy is the author of multiple novels that span many genres. From historical to fantasy, contemporary to gothic thriller, you can always count on Mindy’s books to deliver grit, truth, and an unflinching look at humanity and the world around us.

Mindy has done multiple interviews and guest posts over the years, and has been featured on such outlets as NPR and PBS. She’s also been a guest on a myriad of podcasts, blogs, and websites, many of which can be found on her website.

The workshop will offer a large group panel discussion, breakout sessions, one-on-one critiques, door prizes, and a book signing. The panel will discuss the author-agent relationship. There will be three tracks to choose from for each breakout session. One will focus on adding romance to your writing, one will focus on strengthening your craft, and one will focus on productivity and writer wellness.
