The Desert Nights, Rising Stars
Writers Conference

Conference Faculty

Gracious, generous educators with a passion for community.

Featuring over 25 award-winning writers, editors, agents, educators, and other internationally recognized creative writing professionals, our faculty are here to do more than expand your skill set or open new ways of thinking about your work. They're here to share their experiences, answer questions, and spend time connecting with conference attendees.

Faculty for the 2020 Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference will be announced in Summer of 2019.
