San Francisco Writers University is a project of the non-profit San Francisco Writers Conference, a 509a2 tax exempt charity, which supports a wide variety of writing and literacy organizations throughout the United States and hosts the world-renowned three-day San Francisco Writers Conference every President’s Day weekend in mid-February (sfwriters.org).
San Francisco Writers University sprung from an idea by co-founder Michael Larsen to create a place where writers and other publishing professionals could do four things:
- Gather and improve their writing craft
- Learn about the business of publishing
- Keep up with advancements in technology for writers
- Meet all types of like-minded people to create and then add to their personal publishing network
The courses and events at San Francisco Writers University are focused on solving problems and sharing knowledge. They are not accredited courses and this is no substitute for a Master of Fine Arts degree at a college or university. Our goal was to give tremendous value to our “students”, as well as an online place for them to gather with other writers. We want to be the hub for publishing lessons—both real life and in the classroom.
Founded by Michael Larsen, Elizabeth Pomada and Laurie McLean of Larsen Pomada Literary Agents and the San Francisco Writers Conference, San Francisco Writers University is located on the web at www.sfwritersu.com.
