Our Conferences are diverse and inclusive communities giving voice to writers of all ages and experience. Rather than working in solitude, writers come together to test their assumptions of literature and seek advice on their progress as writers. Open-mindedness, respect, and appreciation are truly valued here, and each person can thrive and benefit from their time on the mountain.
The Bread Loaf Writers’ Conferences provide a time-tested model of instruction for writers, especially in their early stages, to strengthen their command of literary craft, to examine their assumptions about the art, and to seek advice about works-in-progress.
Immersive learning experiences that take place in both national and international contexts, Bread Loaf Writers’ Conferences bring together diverse and talented communities of writers to take part in workshops, lectures, readings, classes, meetings with professionals in the publishing industry, and other programming aiming to prepare, educate, and inspire.
