Intensive workshops in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, screenwriting, translation, and songwriting for serious writers at all levels of experience, as well as a multi-genre workshop for high schoolers and grad credit for teachers (to be used for Continuing Professional Development).

Join us on Maryland’s Western Shore-for the 8th Annual Chesapeake Writers’ Conference for a week of craft talks, lectures, panel discussions, and readings, as well as daily workshops in fiction, poetry, screenwriting, translation, songwriting, or creative nonfiction. Our excellent faculty include Liz Arnold (poetry), Matt Burgess and Patricia Henley (fiction), Angela Pelster (creative nonfiction) and Matthew Henry Hall (youth workshop). In 2019, we’ll offer three new workshops: screenwriting (with Richard Wiebe), songwriting (with Crystal Brandt), and translation (with Heather Green).

Have a look around the website to learn more about these opportunities, as well as information about a day-long visit on campus from publishing professionals, an excursion to the Chesapeake Bay, college course credit, and Continuing Professional Development credit for teachers.

St. Mary’s College sits at the bend of the St. Mary’s River, just upstream from the confluence of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake. The place has a quiet, pastoral beauty.
