2020 Dates are May 9-May 16!

Are you a local writer or someone who wants to dabble and you want to try us out? Check out our A LA CARTE page (opens up once our fellows and scholars are selected and placed in our final schedule) for other purchase options. Feel free to contact us directly with questions or issues with payment at

The small print: As a reminder, all payments for full enrollment with housing cannot be refunded after April 1st (it is likely that spot will not be filled, which costs the conference substantial losses). We also cannot offer a refund for full registration without housing after April 20th (it is unlikely that we would be able to fill that workshop spot, which also costs us dearly). Thank you for being conscientious of this situation. There will be a service fee for refunds before that date ($200 for registrations with housing, $100 for registrations without housing). All other sales are final. All a la carte options are first-come, first-serve, but will remain open throughout the conference.  All payments should go through our online portal if possible, and during the actual conference, we will be able to accept payment onsite as well.   

Deadlines for our fellowships and scholarship are open from September 1 to January 10! Subscribe to our mailing list to the right to be automatically notified when we open up applications again.
