June 25-27, 2015
Each summer, writers with a passion for their art and craft come 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 2015 conference includes best-selling authors sharing their unique perspectives on writing: Tobias Wolff, Jeff Greenwald, Jewell Parker Rhodes, Nahid Rachlin, Scott Lasser,Nina McConigley, 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. "If writing is your religion, this is a gospel revival."
"The Jackson Hole Writers Conference gave me more inspiration and hands-on help to elevate my writing to the next level than any other class or conference that I have attended." Visit http://www.jacksonholewritersconference.com, call 307-413-3332, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
