Sanibel Island Writers Conference

 We welcome any aspiring writer who wants to create new work or refine a project already in progress.

Participants at all stages of development—from notebook scribblers to published novelists—are invited to attend a variety of workshops in fiction, poetry, songwriting, children’s literature, journalism, screenwriting, and creative nonfiction; panels on publishing & editing; and readings, keynote addresses, & concerts.
