Event description

Description

(If you landed on this EventBrite event page before visiting our official conference website, please know this listing only offers abbreviated details and is solely here for processing and managing regsitrations. We encourage you to first visit and explore our official conference website, on which you'll find full details, including speaker and session information, schedule, travel info, etc. You can then access this registration page again from there. We just wanted to eliminate any confusion; EventBrite is our trusted ticket plaform, which is a seperate entity from HippocampusMagazine.com. )

Event Overview

This three-day Pennsylvania writing conference, produced by Hippocampus Magazine (hence our playful event name!), features 50+ notable speakers, engaging keynotes, informative sessions in four tracks, interactive all-conference panels, author and attendee readings, social activities, networking opps, and optional, intimate pre-conference workshops.

We can’t wait to tell you more about this year’s programming — and welcome you to Lancaster, Pa., a city rich in history, arts and culture.

Format & Details

HippoCamp: A Conference for Creative Nonfiction Writers is formatted in the style of a professional development, industry conference more so than that of a typical writing or academic conference. Expect to learn a lot and return home with a notebook and brain full of ideas!

Our full conference website has all of the specifics, but to give you a sense of what this conference is all about here on our EventBrite page, here's a sneak preview:

— Conference center and hotel in heart of historic Lancaster
— Welcome program – orientation and inspiring opening speaker
— 24+ attendee-led break-out sessions covering craft, publishing, work-life balance, business of writing and more!
— A panel featuring "Flash" talks -- each seven minutes -- by 5-6 speakers - fast-paced and fun!
— Several all-conference panel sessions, including a new author showcase
— Headlining evening keynote presentation and signing
— Scores of your peers and publishing professionals
— Multiple pre-conference craft and publishing workshops (an optional add-on)
— Social events including a welcome reception
— Meals and snacks and coffee galore
— On-site conference book store with titles by speakers and your new friends

The official conference website will be updated continuously with new details. Again, this EventBrite event page offers abbreviated details and is solely here for regsitration and processing orders.

About Hippocampus

Founded in 2010, Hippocampus Magazine is an online publication set out to entertain, educate and engage writers and readers of creative nonfiction. HippoCamp: A Conference for Creative Nonfiction Writers, now in its fourth year, is an in-the-flesh extension of that three-fold mission.

Wait, what? HIPPOCAMP? OK. It may sound silly at first glance, so if you're new to us, we should explain: First, our magazine name comes from the seahorse-shaped portion of the brain related to forming memories: the hippocampus. So, then, our conference name is a playful take on our magazine title mixed with that summer-camp feeling you get when spending lots of time learning and bonding with new friends over a short period of time! Voila! HippoCamp! And this means we can call our attendees HippoCamp'ers!


REFUND POLICY: HippoCamp offers a tiered refund policy up to 30 days before the event. Full refund policy available on our Attendee page at conference website, as well as on the EventBrite registration page.


Email us about a limited number of MA/MFA student rates (with valid ID and enrollment verification). We also are offering three scholarships; visit our conference website for application details--the deadline is April 6.
