It’s that special time of year again… Summer is upon us. But more importantly, there’s a quick deadline that I want to share with all of you. Anyone fancying themselves a writer can (and should) apply to the greatest conference of them all… The Writer’s Hotel!
The Writer’s Hotel NYC Writers Conference application deadline is April 22! The Writer’s Hotel is a hybrid writers conference/ “Mini MFA” that meets each June at a hotel campus in Midtown Manhattan, between Library Hotel, The Bryant Park Hotel and The Algonquin Hotel. TWH is unique. We work with each writer on their writing for months before our NYC conference. In NYC this June, writers will enjoy workshops, agent speed dating, editor lectures and genre labs. And each writer gets to read their own work in the city, at KGB Bar Lit, The Cornelia Street Café or Book Culture. NYC literary history is brought to life by the walking tours we offer, led by NYPL and the Dorothy Parker Society. We also host a spectacular game of Wink, Murder at The Algonquin Hotel. Free to apply. TWH also awards three $500 stipends. 2016 faculty: Meghan Daum, Dolen Perkins-Valdez, Scott Wolven, Shanna McNair, Marie Howe, Tim Seibles, Roger Bonair-Agard, Elyssa East, Wesley McNair, Bill Roorbach, Kevin Larimer, Elaine Trevorrow, Bethany Ball and Carey Salerno
