for you—the Southampton Children's Literature Conference."
– School Library Journal
The Southampton Children's Lit Conference provides a unique forum in which to study and discuss the craft of writing for children.
World-renowned authors, illustrators and editors offer inspiration and guidance through workshops, lectures, group discussions and special presentations.
Open to new, established and aspiring writers, the Conference is located in the Hamptons at the Eastern End of New York's Long Island—a resort area of natural beauty.
The Children's Lit writing workshops are led by authors and editors of the first rank, and are the heart and soul of the conference experience.
Workshops meet daily for 3 hour sessions. Enrollment is limited to 12 students per workshop.
