5th Annual Bread Loaf Environmental Writers’ Conference

The 5th annual Bread Loaf Environmental Writers’ Conference is a week-long writers’ conference, based on the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference model, that’s designed to hone the skills of people interested in producing literary writing about the environment and the natural world. The conference is co-sponsored by the Middlebury College Environmental Studies Program and the Franklin Environmental Center.



Friday, June 1 – Thursday, June 7, 2018.  The conference will take place at the Bread Loaf Campus of Middlebury College in Ripton, Vermont.



The conference will incorporate the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference model of small, focused workshops coupled with specialized classes focusing on the craft of writing. Workshops will be limited to ten participants so that each manuscript will receive individual, focused attention, and critique. All participants will also meet individually with their workshop leader to amplify and refine what was said in the workshop itself. Established editors, literary agents, and publishers will give presentations on placing work in magazines and navigating the environmental book publishing world…5
