"This conference, with all these strong, inspiring women, served to remind me that it doesn’t matter what else is going on; I am always going to be valuable, strong, someone who writes worthwhile things, who has a voice that needs to be heard and will not be silenced."

  • Our 41st year of coming together!
  • Over two dozen workshops ranging from three to six days in length and spanning fiction, poetry, memoir, creative nonfiction, screenwriting, playwriting, writing as performance, social justice, multi-genre, and mixed media
  • Critique sessions in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and playwriting
  • A multimedia open studio on Monday night
  • Two book fairs 
  • Nightly open readings

NOTE:  All workshops run for 75 minutes each day, Saturday through Thursday, and are open to all, unless otherwise indicated. You do not need to select your workshop preferences ahead of the conference (unless you wish to attend one of the advanced seminars; see those descriptions for information on applying). During the conference, we encourage you to sample: you may attend any workshop on any day; our faculty generally design their workshops such that each session is a self-contained unit of learning.
