2014 Conference on February 14 & 15.
Check back for 2014 schedule.
The South Coast Writers Conference is an eclectic gathering of writers of various genres, novice and published authors; returning and first-time attendees. It is our goal that participants and presenters leave the conference inspired and renewed, with new insights and skills, and better connected to fellow writers and resources. Once again we have invited some of the Northwest’s best writers to guide you in an exploration and celebration of the many facets of writing. Participation in workshops is limited to 30 students or fewer, register early to secure a seat in the workshops you want.
The conference is always scheduled on Presidents Day weekend in the hopes that you will extend your stay to write and to explore the splendor of America’s Wild Rivers Coast. Visit our miles of spectacular beaches, explore our many hiking trails, or spend time on the mighty Rogue River.
The South Coast Writers Conference is co-sponsored by Southwestern Oregon Community College and the Gold Beach Visitor Center.
