About Author Capital 

the start of an online writing conference


The Problem

One of the best parts of being a writer is the community but, between your work and home life, clearing your schedule for a week-long conference isn't always realistic.

How Author Capital is Different

We wanted to build a writing conference around you - the writer. No more shelling out money, juggling travel itineraries, or missing events because of last-minute conflicts. Author Capital is here when you need it, so you'll never miss an event again.
