Colgate Writers' Conference

June 12-18, 2016

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."

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 faculty member conducts a daily craft talk, which includes writing tips and discussion.

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.

2014 Visiting Readers and Faculty
Include Greg Ames, Jennifer Brice, Christopher Castellani, Kelly Cherry, Brian Hall, Eleanor Henderson, J. Robert Lennon, Bruce Smith, and Jennifer E. Smith.
