Host a Writer

Conference participant meets with faculty member CD Wright

Out-of-town conference attendees either stay in local hotels or with community hosts who have a spare room and a desire to support the local literary arts.

Priority for community housing is given to recipients of financial assistance who otherwise would be unable to afford the conference. Conference attendees are responsible for their own transportation and food beyond conference-supplied meals. They’re individually screened and matched to potential hosts.

Community housing hosts are invited to attend for free eight daytime lectures and four evening readings featuring conference faculty members – a $250 value.
