This intensive program provides a small group of writers with a concentrated and personalized Bread Loaf experience.

The annual Bread Loaf in Sicily Conference is an intensive seven-day writers' conference held in Erice, an ancient, hilltop town on the western coast of Sicily. Featuring five workshops with six participants in each group, the conference provides a small group of writers with a concentrated and personalized Bread Loaf experience.

The workshops will meet four times (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) and will be supplemented with individual conferences. Faculty will give a reading and offer a craft class or lecture for all members of the conference. Workshop participants are invited to share their work in an evening reading for Bread Loafers.

The conference is held at the Hotel Villa San Giovanni, which offers modest but very comfortable accommodations and a breathtaking view of the Tyrrhenian Sea and Sicilian countryside. A walled medieval town of narrow, winding, cobblestone streets, Erice’s compact size makes it easy to walk from the conference hotel to restaurants, cafés, and shops, and to explore its beautifully restored churches, Norrman-era castle, and ancient walls.
