The Sewanee Writers' Conference gathers distinguished faculty to provide instruction and criticism through workshops and craft lectures in fiction, poetry, and playwriting.

This July, over 150 writers will gather on Sewanee's mountaintop campus. During a twelve-day period, participants will read and critique each other's manuscripts under the leadership of distinguished fiction writers, poets, and playwrights. All faculty members and fellows give scheduled readings; some faculty members offer craft lectures. Editors and agents offer panels discussing writing from the view point of editing or publishing.

Workshops form the backbone of the Conference experience. In one-on-one meetings with distinguished faculty members, participants hone their manuscripts, benefiting from the experience of established writers who identify strengths and weaknesses and make suggestions for revisions.

In addition to the literary events, participants enjoy swimming, hiking, or simple strolling and sunset-watching on the University's 13,000-acre domain. Receptions and mealtimes offer ample social opportunities.
