Three Days of Writing Sessions
23-25 Aug 2019
Join the creative community of New England including published authors, educators, and industry professionals as we explore all aspects of the writing life. Over this three-day conference, take part in discussions about the literary world of creative writing, poetry, and non-fiction; attend panels to learn tips on finding an agent and writing query letters; get your hands dirty in workshops and master classes; and hear professional writers share their work.
Hollihock welcomes writers in any phase of their literary life, from beginners intimidated by the blank page, to published professionals looking for a network of fellow creative thinkers to share ideas.
Immerse yourself in the creative world for a wonderful weekend of education and inspiration surrounded by a community of New Englanders with a passion for writing.
