June 23-25, 2016
Join other writers with a passion for the art and craft in Grand Teton National Park's backyard. Jackson Hole Writers Conference attendees are young and old, veterans and novices who do it "for the love of writing."
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: manuscript critiques for an 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.
Supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources. Supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
