Hub City will host the 16th annual Writing in Place conference on the campus of Wofford College July 14-16, 2017 in Spartanburg, South Carolina. This year's conference will feature lots of new workshops, faculty readings, and more!
Registration is now open.
Published novelists, poets, essayists, and literary critics lead a series of workshops over three days that include intense instruction, challenging exercises, and an opportunity for feedback. Registrants must sign up for one genre: poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction. Our instructors will expect you to write during this conference, and we have planned a weekend with "downtime" for that purpose. We also want you to have time for networking with faculty and new friends. This conference is open to 48 adult writers and sells out every year, so register early. This conference is geared toward starting a new piece of work rather than workshopping something you have already written.
Our conference is held in the Michael S. Brown Village Center on the north side of campus. Overnight guests are housed in the Village apartment housing.
