Summer Writers' Conference

July 8-9, 2022 | Online

The Northwestern University Summer Writers’ Conference is back, and it’s online again so you can join us from anywhere in the world.

This year’s schedule offers presentations for writers of all genres and backgrounds. Learn the fundamentals of screenwriting, how to write about friends, family, lovers, and characters that readers can really “see.” Hear from award-winning authors on how to access originality, capture the poetics of place, the power of acrostics. Get pro tips from professionals in publishing and promotions. You can also schedule an individual manuscript consultation with conference faculty.

The Northwestern University Summer Writers’ Conference is a wonderful opportunity to seek a fuller understanding of the craft—and business—of writing.

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

Registration is open now throughout the duration of the conference.
