After each conference, participants apply what they learned in the workshops and plenary sessions to new and old writing projects. All participants are given the opportunity to submit work for consideration Sabal, a literary journal featuring writing by conference participants.

The writers are selected by the conference director and conference coordinator for “The Best Of”. Writers will receive two copies of the volume they appear in and a subscription to the following year’s Sabal.

These works reflect a variety of voices, experiences, and styles, but all have excellence in common. We thank all of our participants for their hard work, talent, commitment, and the generosity of spirit that led them to us and made them colleagues for a wonderful week.
