41st Annual Writers Conference

Virginia is for Writers

Save the Date - May 6, 2023
Freeman Center


Christopher Newport University's annual Writers Conference brings together people who love words as a hobby and as a vocation so that they can learn from agents, editors, publishers, accomplished authors, poets, professional teachers and from each other.

The conference has a long tradition of helping writers learn the skills needed to transfer their thoughts and imagination with clarity and heart to the written page and to understand the many facets of professionally publishing and marketing their work in a fast-changing technological world.

Last year's conference included such highlights as Luisa A. Igloria, 2022 poet laureate of Virginia, a panel on publishing called "From Manuscript to Market" and much more.

The conference is sponsored by Warwick Forest, Writers Advisory Council, Christopher Newport’s English Department, Muse Writers Center and the LifeLong Learning Society.
