Conference Schedule

2017 Conference Schedule


The 2017 Rollins Writers Conference runs from May 16th-May 22nd.

2017 Conference Schedule


The Rollins Writers Conference includes workshops, craft talks, panel discussions, manuscript reviews, and readings, as well as a reception and a dinner.

One-on-one manuscript consultations occur at a time and place arranged mutually by the attendee and faculty members, and not during times when other events are scheduled.

Workshops, while discussing the design of each workshop piece and its performance in that design, center on a matter or matters about writing that workshop leaders choose. Workshops also place emphasis on the possibilities for revising each piece.

Talks by conference faculty consider a topic of interest to all writers - elements of design, shapes of the sentence, sounds of words, close readings of a favored story or poem, invention and reinvention, memory and imagination, etc.
