Huge congratulations to our three UnConference Scholarship winners, who will each receive a ticket to the event and a $600 stipend:

Leesa Brown

Amelia Loken


Thomas Womack!

Our thanks to all who applied. You are a talented group of writers, and you made our choice very difficult indeed.

Thanks also to the generous artists who contributed to the WU auction event, Lisa Janice Cohen, Deb Lacativa, and Marta Pelrine-Bacon. Your generosity directly impacted this event by enabling us to provide stipends to three people vs. one person. And to auction winners Brian B King, Melissa Hed, and Sharon Bially: Thank you for your support. Thank you, too, to all who participated in the auction via bids and through social media shares. We appreciate you!

Early registration for the WU UnConference ends on May 31st, in just two weeks. Thirty tickets remain, and we’d love for one of them to have your name on it. Learn more about the WU UnConference on our Eventbrite page.

Writer Unboxed began as a collaboration between Therese Walsh and Kathleen Bolton in 2006. Since then the site has grown to include ~50 regular contributors–including bestselling authors and industry leaders–and frequent guests.

In 2014, the first Writer Unboxed UnConference (part UNtraditional conference, part intensive craft event, part networking affair) was held in Salem, MA. Learn more about our 2019 event, ESCAPE TO WuNDERLAND, on Eventbrite.

In 2016, the Writer Unboxed team published a book with Writer’s Digest. AUTHOR IN PROGRESS: A No-Holds-Barred Guide to What It Really Takes to Get Published has been well-received by readers who seek help in overcoming the hurdles faced at every step of the novel-writing process–from setting goals, researching, and drafting to giving and receiving critiques, polishing prose, and seeking publication. James Scott Bell has said of the guide, “Nourishment for the writer’s soul and motivation for the writer’s heart.”

Trumpery Resistance

Trumpery Resistance

17.99 - 27.99eBook: $4.99

MacKenzie Dillon serves as a as a protectorate soldier in the New Republic, a new order that was created from the ravaged mind of a leader who had long ago given up his sanity. Now the New Republic is protected by a wall that keeps out everything that exists in the Wastes and keeps everything within it subjected to the severest restrictions of freedom and mental conditioning.

But MacKenzie is having flashbacks from his youth. The conditioning he has undergone is failing and with it comes a new realization that he is not what he thought he was. Confused by the change in circumstances, he takes on a role that allows him to infiltrate the resistance.

There he uncovers the real reasons behind America’s decline and the formation of the New Republic. But there’s yet more. A secret Caste called the Omega who really controls everything, the truth about the destruction of half the country and a deadly plot that has been set in motion against neighboring nations.

MacKenzie’s quest for the truth and justice is just beginning. But is the way of the resistance any better than what the nation already has?
