Program Overview

Program Description:
For 40 years, writers have regarded our campus as a gathering place to share ideas and find community. In July, join us in Southampton and become the newest member of that legacy. As part of the Stony Brook Southampton MFA Writing Program, the Writers Conference provides a forum for authors of all genres to study and discuss the craft of writing. Through workshops, lectures, readings, and small-group discussions, the conference offers inspiration and guidance to new writers, established writers, teachers of writing, editors and children’s book authors.
