About AMWA 2018

AMWA 2018 will be exploring integrity (in a post-truth world). Our sessions will focus on writing with integrity, current industry trends and challenges, and forging a career with integrity. We will also be hosting a panel discussion on ethical medical writing.

As well as four comprehensive sessions, our conference will offer plenty of opportunities for ongoing education as we will be hosting nine workshops this year.

Our workshop topics will include freelancing, SEO copywriting, writing for a clinical audience, navigating stakeholder relationships, defamation for medical writers, writing a book and data visualisation.

AHMEN, the Australasian Health and Medical Editors Network, will also be hosting a 3-hour event.

Our full program will be released in May. Members will be notified as soon as registrations open. Non-members can join our conference email list here.
