Your Hosts

Roger and Carolyn Nielsen, hosts for the Writers’ Marketing Conference, began writing fiction after a career as editors and publishers in the trade magazine industry. When James Beers, the founder of the conference, announced he needed someone to take over management, Roger leapt at the chance to continue the tradition. “We needed it and we knew other writers did, as well,” Roger said.


Our Mission

To assist writers become:

  • authors with a platform that represents who they are

  • confident in their message and the identity of their audience

  • comfortable in presenting themselves and promoting their books
