BDSM Writers Con
is for writers, readers and everyone interested in
exploring the world of
Dominance and submission.

No other conference offers writers and readers the ability to discover the complexities of Dominance and submission through workshops, live demos, and fascinating hands-on experiences while you interact with your favorite, and soon to be favorite, BDSM authors.

BDSM Writers Con has created a safe comfortable environment where you can explore the various nuances of the lifestyle. We host several Mix and Mingles as well as a night out at a private BDSM Club. Should I mention all the fabulous giveaways many of our featured authors and sponsors are planning just for you?

For writers, we host a special Author Buddy Program to allow authors to network with each other, answer questions, and share advice. Of course, we also host a Publisher’s Panel on Friday, followed immediately by our publishers/editors appointments for any author to pimp their stories. Last year, thirty-six (36) authors were provided with a contract from our participating publishers because of their direct participation in BDSM Writers Con.

Not an author, that’s okay, we have plenty for readers to do as well, including several Author/Reader Mix & Mingles, starting with our “Unofficial Conference Kickoff” dinner and drinks get-together on Wednesday evening for anyone arriving early.

BDSM Writers Con brings together some of the TOP BDSM presenters in the world, who will conduct Live Demos on various aspects of the D/s Lifestyle; as well as experienced BDSM authors who will share their expertise in the field. We host over 25 hours of workshops for authors and readers and provide Continuing Education Certificates for those who need them.

The BDSM Writers Conference is likely the most important event for a writer of erotica or erotic romance with BDSM elements. No amount of googling could rival the sensory input and knowledge from the conference’s real-life demonstrations, exposure to different types of play, and discussions by BDSM community members. Hopefully my future writing will reflect a more realistic and complete picture of, not only scenes, but the mental and emotional aspects of BDSM. A huge thank you to Dr. Charley for bringing together writers of this genre with community members!

“Conferences are expensive and time consuming – will it be worth it? I’m delighted to say not only was the BDSM Writer’s Conference worth it, it exceeded my expectations pretty much at every level. Even better, I saw that pleasure and experience reflected in the attendees I encountered, both readers and authors.”

Joey W. Hill

Keynote Speaker 2014“I was nervous, excited, and curious all at once to be attending the conference. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m pleased to say, it was everything and more. From my favorite authors to new found friends. I had the time of my life and discovered where I belong. Save my seat because I’m coming back for BDSM Writers Con 2015. “
