The Mendocino Coast Writers Conference began as a one day event in 1990 at what was then the Fort Bragg Center for the Arts. The following year in 1991, the conference grew from one day on a Friday afternoon, all day Saturday and even a Sunday morning session. Now the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference is a three day event. This year it will be held on July 26-28, 2012 and is limited to 100 participants where excellent writers who are also outstanding teachers will encourage and help you develop your craft in a supportive community to explore how writing can shape the world. Whatever the genre. Whether fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, words are one of the most powerful instruments of change. Exchange ideas with authors, editors, literary agents, and writers of many talents, ages and backgrounds.
At the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference there is a broad sampling of genres. Enjoy workshops, afternoon lectures and discussion sessions, professional consultation and readings.
Fees for this event is $575. The fees includes three mornings of workshops with your chosen presenter. Three afternoons of lectures, readings and panel discussions. All breakfasts and lunches, which includes a continental breakfast and cold lunch of salads or sandwiches will be served daily on campus to all faculty and participants. Coffee, soft drinks and water are available all day. Thursday welcome reception with fine local Anderson Valley wines and hors d’oeuvres and a buffet prepared by the conference board.
