Summer Writers' Conference

July 30-31, 2021 | Online

The Northwestern University Summer Writers’ Conference is back! And this year, the conference is entirely online  so you can join us from anywhere in the world.

This year’s schedule offers presentations for writers of all genres and backgrounds. Learn how to write your life in 750 words or less, structure your chapbook, and infuse your writing with revolution. Hear from award-winning authors on how to generate dramatically rich scenes, evoke memories through metaphors, and layer your writing with suspense. Get some pro tips for interviewing and advice on how and when to submit to literary journals, agents, and contests.

The Northwestern University Summer Writers’ Conference is a wonderful opportunity to seek a fuller understanding of the craft—and business—of writing. Writers at all levels of experience are welcome.

The conference is hosted by the Northwestern University School of Professional Studies MA in Writing and  MFA in Prose and Poetry programs.
