From our friends at St. Mary's College:
The Chesapeake Writers Conference at St. Mary's College of Maryland
July 11-15, 2012
Join a community of writers on Maryland's beautiful Western Shore for the first Chesapeake Writers' Conference at St. Mary's College of Maryland. For five days we will focus intensively on writing in small, selective workshops led by acclaimed writers.
Participants will work with faculty closely to hone their craft in one of six genres:fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, food writing, writing about place, and writing for children. Craft classes, lectures on writing, and discussions of publishing will supplement the intensive workshop experience, and recreational activities will allow participants to explore and enjoy the beaches, bays, wineries and restaurants of the region.
