Over 50 craft talks, panels, presentations, and more
Featuring over 50 craft talks, workshops, panels, and presentations, our conference is eclectic, comprehensive, balanced, and diverse.
As a conference focused on literary craft and techinque, we cover all major genres and forms, including fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, memoir, young adult, and genre fiction. Sessions also touch on editing, publishing, the business of writing, and the writing life.
We also highlight special topics like travel writing, climate change, graphic novels, translation, disability studies, hybrid forms, social justice, and more.
The day begins around 8:00 a.m. and ends around 5:00 p.m. Sessions are typically an hour each.
Beyond regular sessions, we also offer advanced workshops with selected conference faculty before the conference begins.
The schedule for the 2019 Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference will be announced soon.
