Generative writing conferences bring together the best of both worlds: community and creativity. Spend four days writing new material in the genre of your choice, attending craft talks by award-winning faculty, and enjoying lakeside lunches and evening readings while making connections in the literary world that will last for years to come. Writers will learn to sharpen images, improve dialogue, deepen metaphors, and grow in styles and voices of their own. *You might be interested in arrivng a few days earlier for the Introduction to Blogging for Artists and Writers workshop on Saturday, June 14, 2014.
