The Chesapeake Writers’ Conference
- June 3, 2015
Aspiring scribes to descend on St. Mary’s this summer.
Ready to up your authoring game? Consider attending the Chesapeake Writers’ Conference in southern Maryland! Located on the grounds of St. Mary’s College, the weeklong event includes lectures, intense-but-positive workshops, panel discussions, and readings.
It also promises to be an excellent time.
“I think what sets us apart is essentially our vibe and our work ethic,” says Jerry Gabriel, the conference’s director. “We have a good-humored crew — the faculty, but also our student workers, who compete for scholarships to attend — who take pains to make our week together comfortable and productive.”
Because of the event’s modest size, “Everyone knows everyone else by the end of day one. The faculty — award-winners, all of them — are sitting next to you at every meal, asking you about your family and, of course, about your novel.”
The fact that the setting includes the beautiful St. Mary’s River and nearby Chesapeake Bay is just a bonus.
This year’s Chesapeake Writers’ Conference takes place July 12-18 in St. Mary’s City, MD. Click here for more information, including a complete schedule of events.
