Participants at all stages of development—from notebook scribblers to published novelists—are invited to attend a variety of workshops in fiction, poetry, songwriting, children’s literature, journalism, screenwriting, and creative nonfiction; panels on publishing & editing; and readings, keynote addresses, & concerts.
All scheduled events are presented by celebrated and experienced writers and teachers, and open to full-time registrants. The conference welcomes any aspiring writer who wants to create new work or refine a project already in progress.

For an additional fee, full-time registrants have two options to receive feedback on a pre-submitted manuscript:
meet individually with a presenter for a Manuscript Consultation, or
join a Small-Group Manuscript Workshop.
We have 175 openings for the conference itself; however, space for individual Manuscript Consultations and Small-Group Manuscript Workshops is very limited, so act fast.
More information, including fees, guidelines, and a complete list of participating manuscript readers and small-group workshop leaders, can be found on the “Register” link.
If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us.
See you in November!
