Colgate Writers' Conference


June 11-17, 2017

Our senior staff is here to talk with you about writing and the writing life, and to work with you on your fiction, poetry, novel, or creative nonfiction. Whether you are a veteran writer or a novice, we offer a full schedule of consultations, workshops, craft talks, panel discussions, readings, and informal conversations that will sustain your long-range efforts or help you get started.

Participant Comments
"Very knowledgeable instructors, combined honesty with pleasant encouragement, [and were] generous with their time."
"You taught, guided, and encouraged us to be better writers. You did this with heart."


Manuscripts
Each participant submits a manuscript to be discussed in class. In addition, instructors schedule personal conferences concerning each participant's manuscript. Our novel and creative nonfiction workshops accept hundreds of pages, not just a chapter or two.

Shop Talks
Agents, editors and publishers share tips of the trade.

Craft Talks
Each day, a faculty member will conduct a craft talk, which includes writing tips and discussion.

Workshops
Workshops take place daily in small groups. Participant manuscripts are discussed, writing strategies practiced. Intense workshops allow every participant to receive personalized instruction throughout the week.

Evening Activities
Readings by renowned writers, open mics, music, participant readings, and other social gatherings.

Faculty
The faculty and readers include 2016 Pulitzer Prize winning poet Peter Balakian; fiction writers Greg Ames, Brock Clarke, CJ Hauser, Naomi Jackson, and J. Robert Lennon; and creative nonfiction writers Jennifer Brice and David Ryan.
