Every summer, passion for the written word brings writers together in Grand Teton National Park's backyard. Jackson Hole Writers Conference attendees are young and old, veterans and tenderfoots who share one common denominator: they all love writing.
The 2014 conference includes best-selling authors sharing their unique perspectives on writing: Craig Johnson, Justin Torres, Sarah Bird, Jon Mooallem, Julene Bair, Amy Kathleen Ryan, Nahid Rachlin, Bill Ransom, Kyle Mills, Tim Sandlin.
Conference workshops are led by novelists, creative non-fiction writers, poets, agents, and editors. Whatever your emphasis, you will learn the nuts and bolts of the writing profession, from cultivating ideas to making the sale. Our goal is to help our writers get published.
Attendees enjoy unusual access to agents, editors, and writing faculty. Unique feature: three manuscript critiques included for a small additional fee. Over the three days of the conference you'll mingle, chat, and get to pick some of the best brains in the writing business.
Choose from four tracks: Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction, Poetry, and Young Adult Fiction.
