  Why Attend?
  • Your Story Is Important.   Stories are written to move people, to change people's lives. Learn HOW and WHERE your story is best told to achieve its greatest success both creatively and financially.
  • Learn from Today’s Top Teachers.   Only at Story Expo will you get almost 80 of today's top speakers, all A-List story experts, in one weekend, many teaching classes not available anywhere else.
  • Be Inspired.   Stories inspire us. They move us. They make us feel. The great French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard said, "Sometimes reality is too complex. Stories give it form.” We all need that push, that inspiration, that allows us to create amazing new story worlds. Be around fellow writers from around the world who you will find inspiration in, and who will find inspiration in you.
  • Sell Your Script!   Unlike most pitching events, the executives hearing pitches in the Story Expo Pitching Room are the real deal - development execs, VPs, managers and more. And in LA this September, we launch our revolutionary "Pitch Council" format - where you can pitch EVERY executive at the same time!
  • It's Story Expo!   For the last 7 years, Story Expo has grown each year to become the preeminent conference in the world for story writers in film, TV, publishing, online and more. Each year we strive to produce a bigger and better program, which is why people return year after year.
  • Value. Unlike most professional conferences and expos charging $600+, Story Expo offers over 80 sessions and almost 100 speakers for only $249, which includes all speakers, classes, Q&As, pitching and keynotes.
