Yale Writers' Conference Workshops
In Session I writers will participate in ten days of workshops, lectures, individual conferences and readings intended to broaden their understanding of the craft of writing. Visiting faculty will lead master classes limited to no more than thirty writers and deliver craft talks to all conference participants. And because we write to be read, in Session I we will have panels of agents and editors to provide insight into the publishing process and the realities of the writer’s life.
Session II is intended for writers concentrating in a specific genre. Over four days, participants will meet in a seminar with eleven fellow writers, led by a faculty member established in the field. The seminar will include exercises and readings as well as discussion of student work. During the conference faculty will hold half-hour, one-to-one meetings with participants.
