schedule & tickets   venue   official site  

Join us for a day of workshops, discussion, and writing centered on the 2019 theme of Place. All ages and experience levels. Registration required. Now in its third year, the Wilmington Writers Conference will include a keynote presentation and craft talk by local playwright Erlina Ortiz and eleven other sessions taught by area writers. This year the conference will explore the theme of 'place' in conversation with the Museum's summer exhibition Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago and special exhibition The Loper Tradition: Paintings by Edward Loper, Sr. and Edward Loper, Jr. 

The conference--which is open to individuals of all ages and experience levels, from first-time writers to published authors--is $30 for the general public, $25 for senior citizens and Museum Members, and $15 for students with an ID. A limited number of full scholarships will be available.

The Wilmington Writers Conference was organized by the Museum in partnership with a group of local, professional, and aspiring writers. In addition to providing resources for area writers, the goal of the conference is to spark discussion, provide opportunities for networking, and to build a stronger writing community in Delaware and the surrounding region. The conference kicks off the night before on Friday, July 26 with an informal gathering and open mic emceed by Maria Masington from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. After Ms. Ortiz's keynote address on Saturday, conference participants will attend a morning and afternoon session they have previously chosen from a list of diverse offerings, which include: 

The day will conclude with a moderated panel discussion about writing while working with Mara Gorman, David P. Kozinski, and Chet'la Sebree.
