Sanibel Island Writers Conference

The Sanibel Island Writers Conference will be online Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021.

Participants at all stages of development — from notebook scribblers to published novelists — are invited to view a variety of discussions and panels on fiction, poetry, YA literature, screenwriting, creative nonfiction, and publishing and editing.

No registration is required for this year's conference, as it is free and open to the public.

Note: If you pre-registered for the 2021 conference, contact Tom DeMarchi at to roll your registration over to the 2022 conference or to receive a refund.
