Over 50 craft talks, panels, presentations, and more
Featuring more than 50 presentations, panels, and workshops over three days, the Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference prides itself on creating an environment that is as challenging as it is supportive, as broad and accessible as it is in-depth.
While most sessions explore special topics related to literary practice, craft, mechanics, and technique, the conference also covers editing, agents, reviews, publishing, and other issues and trends in contemporary literature.
Genres and forms include fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, memoir, young adult, science fiction, fantasy, graphic novels, comics, screenplays, crime fiction, personal essays, criticism, hybrid and more.
The day begins around 8:00 a.m. and ends around 5:00 p.m. Sessions are typically an hour each.
