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.
