WRITEHIVE MISSION STATEMENT
WRITEHIVE is an online, non-profit, all-digital convention designed to celebrate the diversity, accomplishments, and community of writers and literary professionals around the world. We offer livestream presentations, exhibits, and other public outreach activities with the intent to connect members of the community and foster collaboration, inspiration, and growth.
Sometimes, the simplest stories are the best. There was no flash or bang that brought WRITEHIVE to life. Instead, it started as a simple idea: hold a convention that anyone could attend. So that's what we've set out to create.
With the help of novelists, editors, book designers, and industry professionals around the globe, we've built a platform that will allow anyone the chance to attend an amazing writing convention. For free. From home. Neither money nor location should be an obstacle to success.
We hope to provide an inclusive, productive event that showcases the immense talent of the online writing community. We want to provide entertainment and growth opportunities for attendees, and show the world that amazing things are possible when people come together.

HOW IT WORKS
WRITEHIVE is designed to be a hub -- a "convention center" where attendees visit. but, like any con, writehive isn't the main attraction.
it's all about the events!
During convention weekend, our officially-registered partners will host events. Just like an IRL con, each partner will have their own dedicated space. They might be livestreaming on Twitter or Twitch, or hosting a chatroom on Discord. They might be part of a panel on Skype, or hosting an AMA on Reddit!
We want our partners to have full control over how they want to deliver their content. Our only job is making sure you know how to find it!
Attendees can drop by WRITEHIVE to get an official event schedule so they don't miss out on any of the fun. Events will run 24/7, April 18th and 19th, so you won't have to worry about being in an awkward timezone. If work or other life events are a factor: DON'T WORRY! We'll do our best to record and archive as much of the convention as possible, so you'll be able to catch up on anything you might miss!
