Eckerd College Writers' Conference: Writers in Paradise

Thank you to all our participants, instructors and speakers for an amazing 2015 conference. Information on our Writers in Paradise 2016 Conference will be annouced soon.

What Makes Us Different?

Located on the beautiful waterfront campus of Eckerd College, this writers' conference features professional writers at the top of their form spending time with motivated and talented participants who seek an intimate, unhurried climate for learning . . . in paradise.

An Intimate and Intensive Experience

This intensive eight-day experience of intimate workshop classes, roundtables, panel discussions, readings, book signings and receptions is designed for those who are passionate about writing.

The tranquil seaside landscape sets the tone for this informal gathering of writers, teachers, editors, and literary agents. The intimate size and secluded location of the Eckerd College Writers' Conference allow you the time and opportunity to share your manuscripts, critique one another's work and discuss the craft of writing with experts and peers who can help guide you to the next level.

Why You Should Attend

After eight days of workshopping and engagement with peers and professionals in your field, you will leave this unique opportunity with a new and better understanding of your craft and solid ideas about how to find an agent and get published.
