ΛΟΓΟΤΕΧΝΙΚΟ ΣΥΝΕΔΡΙΟ: 

The Writer’s Hotel Master Class in Fiction, Nonfiction & Poetry!



Event Dates: June 7-13, 2017 / Registration Deadline: April 24, 2017
The Writer's Hotel is not just another writers conference. We work with each writer on a target manuscript from the moment of acceptance. We offer the rare opportunity to polish manuscripts with professional editors before meeting with instructors, writers, agents, industry professionals and editors on site. Much like the momentum fostered by a Creative Writing MFA community and its mentors, writers tend to arrive at the conference feeling confident and productive and ready to bring their work to market in New York City. There is no other writers conference quite like The Writer's Hotel.
SPACE IS LIMITED. DEADLINE: APRIL 22. We're getting applications from all over the world, and we're excited to read your writing sample, too. It's free to apply. Using our Submittable online system, upload 20-25 pages of writing in your chosen genre and include a brief letter of interest.
Program Features: writing workshops, panel discussions, manuscript critiques, readings, pitch sessions, roundtable discussions
Genres: fiction, nonfiction, poetry
Event Size: 70 students maximum
Faculty: 2017 faculty TBA. 2016 faculty included Tim Seibles, Dolen Perkins-Valdez, Roger Bonair-Agard, Scott Wolven, Shanna McNair, Meghan Daum, Bill Roorbach, Wesley McNair, and Marie Howe.
Presenters: 2017 presenters TBA. 2016 presenters included Kevin Larimer, Carey Salerno, Elyssa East, Bethany Ball, Elaine Trevorrow, agents, and editors.
Program description: Ready to take your writing to NYC? We will help you every step of the way. Let's bring your manuscript from desk to reading venue to marketplace.
At TWH, each writer receives personal attention and is given practical approaches to navigating the publishing industry. Before arrival in NYC for the conference on site, TWH Editors read each target manuscript twice. TWH Editors also work to connect writers with publishing opportunities, and each writer brings their manuscript to market, reading their work at great venues and engaging editors and agents one-on-one in pitch meetings.
Via TWH, you'll take writing from your desk to the publishing marketplace, right in the heart of New York City. You'll get to read your work at a well-known NYC venue, like KGB Bar Lit, Book Culture or Cornelia Street. You'll go to daily events held in inspiring locations, like the penthouse lofts of The Bryant Park Hotel and Library Hotel, and the Round Room of The Algonquin. You'll participate in several intensive writing workshops, attend lectures, pitch meetings and literary events, and go on historic literary walking tours given by the Dorothy Parker Society and NYPL docents. And you'll take your writing to the next level.
