University’s creative writing holds summer session

Looking to inspire the writer within? Fairfield University’s master’s in creative writing program will host the first annual Fairfield University Summer Conference for Writers from July 18-22 on Enders Island, off the coast of Mystic.

Award-winning faculty from the university’s low-residency MFA program will lead workshops in prose and poetry, seminars and craft talks and present readings. Participants will also take part in agent and editor panels, gaining insight on navigating the publishing world.

The application process requires an application form, writing sample and a nonrefundable deposit of $60. Accepted writers will pay an additional $740 tuition fee, which includes a welcome reception and dinner on July 18 and lunch each day.

Breakfasts, dinners and overnight accommodations are not included in the fee. Participants may opt for a full meal plan during the conference for an additional $180.
