40TH SOUTHAMPTON WRITERS CONFERENCE
JULY 8 – 19, 2015
12 Days In the Hamptons
from the website:
Imagine an opportunity to immerse yourself in your work while in the company of other serious writers. Then imagine this taking place on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Southampton, Long Island. Since 1976, the Southampton Writers Conference has brought together writers at all stages of their careers with world-class novelists, essayists, editors, poets and children’s book authors for lectures, readings, panels and workshops.
All writers are welcome to attend the Conference, including those who seek a 12-day writers residency in the Hamptons. This year’s offerings include a 5-part craft lecture series with Roger Rosenblatt. Admission to a 5-day writing workshop is competitive and requires additional application materials.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
