January 16-23, 2016



2015: Join best-selling authors for the 12th Annual Eckerd College Writers' Conference: Writers in Paradise which will take place on the shores of Boca Ciega Bay at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, January 16-23, 2016.

The tranquil seaside landscape sets the tone for this informal gathering of writers, teachers, editors, and literary agents. The intimate size and secluded location of the Eckerd College Writers' Conference experience allow you the time and opportunity to share your manuscripts, critique one another's work and discuss the craft of writing with experts and peers who can help guide you to the next level.

After eight days of workshopping and engagement with peers and professionals in your field, you will leave this unique opportunity with solid ideas about how to find an agent and get published, along with a new and better understanding of your craft.

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.
