Chesapeake Writers Conference, June 19-25


St. Mary’s River, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

Registration is now open for the 2016 Chesapeake Writers Conference at St. Mary’s College, St. Mary’s City, MD!

Each summer, we host between 35 and 45 writers at all levels of experience for a week of lectures, craft talks, readings, and panel discussions, as well as daily workshops in the genre each participant has applied in–fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction. These workshops, as well as the other events, are led by exemplary faculty, including National Book Award finalist, Patricia Henley, and PEN/Diamondstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay finalist, Angela Pelster.

The conference will run from June 19-25. It’s worth noting, though, a few unique offerings at the Chesapeake Writers’ Conference:
·         A multi-genre youth workshop for high school students.
·         Two hours of course credit for enrolled college students.
·         A publishing panel discussion, as well as individual meetings, with both an agent and an editor (both are yet to be announced, but these will be industry insiders from major New York firms)

Please see the website below for more details.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. As of now, we still have seats.
