Since 1995, the Colgate Writers Conference has been nurturing writers at every stage, from aspiring to published. People can apply to study for two hours every day with one of our distinguished faculty in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama, or they can simply relax and recharge in our bucolic surroundings. We offer daily talks on the craft of writing as well as the practicalities of publishing. Every day ends with a reading followed by a convivial gathering on the Merrill House porch.
