2014 Southampton Writers Conference

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. Imagine intimate, intensive workshop sessions led by a distinguished author, with a rich schedule of readings, lectures, panels and discussions given by world-class novelists, essayists, editors, poets and children’s book authors. And then there’s the beach….

Come on in. The water’s fine.
