BookEnds fellows come to the conference following their June orientation sessions, which take place online. During the Southampton Writers Conference, incoming fellows meet daily with program directors Meg Wolitzer and Susan Scarf Merrell. 

BookEnders who are finishing up their program year return to meet one-on-one with the literary agents who have screened their finished works, and to give a graduation reading. BookEnds alums return for a retreat and special workshop on the final two days of the Southampton Writers Conference.

BookEnds fellows can take advantage of all the lectures and readings at the Southampton Writers Conference. BookEnds alums must purchase a Lecture Series in order to participate.
