St. Augustine Writers Conference

October 1-6

“I can’t say enough good things about my time at this conference. Connie May Fowler and her faculty provide a rare combination of intelligence and warmth. If you want to commune with other writers in a caring and fun environment choose this conference.I judge a conference by what I take from it and after my time with Connie and her faculty, my heart was full of joy, inspiration, and courage for the craft of writing.” Gale Massey, 2014 participant

“This was by far the most illuminating, inspiring writers workshop I’ve ever attended. The benefit came not only from the outstanding faculty, but also from the high caliber of students selected to participate.” John Koenig, 2013 participant

St. Augustine is a walking city with a plethora of lodging options, from frugal to opulent. We’re proud to announce that this year The Ocean Sands Beach Inn is the official lodge of the St. Augustine Writers Conference, offering participants deeply discounted prices for their conference stay. In addition to the historic charm of the Ancient City with its myriad of culturally significant sites such as the Castillo de San Marcos and Fort Mose, the area boasts some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches.
