USM Summer

2014 Stonecoast Writers' Conference

Event Date and Time: 
Sunday, July 20, 2014, 5:00 PM to Saturday, July 26, 2014, 1:00 PM

Imagine: seven days to live inside the book you want to write; seven days to work and rework your poems; seven days surrounded by people who grapple with sentences, who fall in love with words; seven days to soak in the salt air, to contemplate the waters of Casco Bay.

At the Stonecoast Writers’ Conference students work closely with a distinguished faculty composed of award-winning writers. Our daily talks and evening readings will expand and challenge your understanding of literature. We offer workshops in the following genres: poetry, short fiction, novel, nonfiction/memoir, and creative writing.

Whether you have only recently started to commit your ideas to paper, or if you are polishing a manuscript before submitting it for a contest, the Stonecoast Writers’ Conference has something to offer you.
