The 2018 Austin Writers Conference will take place October 25-30, 2018. Speakers and panelists will include Oscar-winner Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton) and many other screenwriters, directors, producers, managers, and agents. Badge prices go up the closer you get to the festival, and accommodations and flights book up, so now’s the time to make travel plans. You can pack a costume and extend your stay through Halloween, when Austin’s 6th Street turns into a mammoth Halloween Party.
