The Kettle Pond Writers’ Conference welcomes writers of all levels to join our talented and diverse community of writers for a week of immersion in craft, critique, and creating. The Kettle Pond course of study combines workshops led by award-winning poets and novelists, industry talks, lectures, reading, and structured outdoor recreation to create a one-of-a-kind experience that endures long beyond our 2019 conference dates, June 22-29th, 2019.
We take great pride in our unique and holistic approach to workshop.
