Kaz Conference Writing Workshop

Kaz Conference Writing Workshop - the home of small, focused writing workshops on the east end of Long Island. Organized by author and activist Donna Kaz, the Kaz Conference offers two to four intensive seminars for writers each spring and fall: Advanced Manuscript Boot Camp (fiction/nonfiction); Creative Nonfiction Writers Conference; Writing Comedy Workshop for Women (all genres) and Script Lab (Plays/Screenplays). All workshops include developmental workshops as well as panels on the practical training of writers with input from editors, publicists, agents, social media experts and productivity coaches. Because reading and reviewing other work helps to strengthen ones own writing, peer review is a requirement of all sessions. Just 16 writers are accepted for each cohort. The Kaz Conference Writing Workshop is committed to diversity and our faculty reflect an all-encompassing and equal world. Our goal is to challenge, inspire and foster a writers community that continues beyond the workshops.
