"Words are things… Some day we’ll be able to measure the power of words. I think they are things. They get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper. They get in your rugs, in your upholstery, and your clothes, and finally in to you."
– Maya Angelou

2020 brings a new venue, new workshops, and special events to our Annual Summer Conference – all in a setting of natural beauty at Misselwood on the Endicott College Campus in Beverly, MA.

Reconnect with, or get to know, our beloved faculty; go in-depth at one of our intensives; stop in for a session on our new business and technology tracks; expect some fun membership pop-ups; meet with an agent/editor; and experience again the joy of community.

Maya Angelou's vision of "some day" is NOW.  Together we stand in the doorway of a new decade, one that needs your vision, your voice, and the power of your words more than ever before.
