Located on the coast of the picturesque Boca Ciega Bay, the Twelfth Annual Eckerd College Writers’ Conference: Writers in Paradise offers an intimate eight-day experience of workshop classes, roundtables, panel discussions, Q&As, readings book signings, and receptions with our award winning-faculty and guest speakers.

This year’s faculty and guests include: Pulitzer Prize winner Gilbert King, MacArthur “Genius Grant” Poet Campbell McGrath, Andre Dubus III, Ann Hood, Dennis Lehane, Laura Lippman, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Stewart O’Nan, Les Standiford, Scott Ward, Sterling Watson, and more.

We are happy to say that we offer at least 20 fellowships and scholarships on a competitive basis, many specifically for current MFA students and recent MFA graduates (2010-2015).

The Eckerd College Writers' Conference is for writers of various styles and approaches. While admission is selective, the admission committee accepts writers with early potential as well as those with strong backgrounds in writing. Space is limited in workshops. Applicants are encouraged to apply early.
