As part of the Stony Brook Southampton MFA Writing Program, the Writers Conference provides a forum for authors of all genres to study and discuss the craft of writing. Through workshops, lectures, readings, and small-group discussions, the conference offers inspiration and guidance to new writers, established writers, teachers of writing, editors and children’s book authors.

The primary work of the Conference is conducted in writing workshops in the novel, short story, poetry, literary essay, playwriting, memoir, creative nonfiction and children’s lit. This year's workshop faculty includes authors of the first rank who are also experienced, accessible teachers, including Billy Collins, Roger Rosenblatt, Meg Wolitzer, Melissa Bank, and Matt Klam. Workshop size is limited. Sessions meet for three hours on alternate mornings throughout the Conference. Remaining mornings are devoted to lectures featuring faculty members and leading authors. Early application is recommended.

Evening events will feature regular faculty and award-winning visiting authors. In the afternoons, participants may choose from a wide range of "elective" sessions, which include presentations by distinguished editors, publishers, and agents, as well as mini-workshops on special topics in writing. Participants will also enjoy a rich schedule of formal and informal social gatherings--author receptions, an open-mic night, an issue launch of The Southampton Review, and an evening of theatre.
