2021 Festival Programming

Program 2021 Bulletin #5
Welcome to those who have joined the WWC Presenter mailing list. When Words Collide is a unique type of festival where everyone–organizers and presenters–volunteer their time and efforts to bring readers and writers together in a celebratory weekend. Without you, there would be no festival.
I apologize for the long delay since the last bulletin. I had to put the program aside while I learned how to use Eventbrite and set up registration for an online version of our festival. Please note: while you will receive email invitations to the sessions where you are presenting, if you wish to attend the rest of the festival, you will need to register. Registration is free at:

Thank you to everyone who reviewed the program after the last bulletin and provided your updated availability and panel discussion preferences. The program has been reworked for an online event (instead of in-person) and many sessions seated in response to your preferences. At this time, while the business of writing/craft component of the schedule is pretty much full, there is still space in most other areas, especially Romance, YA/Childrens, and Speculative fiction.
We are now requesting that presenters review the updated schedule and let us know if there are any issues with your scheduled times or topics. We are also asking presenters who are not yet scheduled to let us know your panel discussion preferences. If you don't see any that are a good fit, please suggest some topics that do. It is our goal to include everyone in the program.
