Lewes Public Library

Registration is now available for the upcoming Ninth Annual Lewes Creative Writers’ Conference. The Conference will be held on Saturday, August 20th from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm. Workshops on a variety of writing-related topics will be held throughout the day. Workshop descriptions and registration information can be found here.

Please read the workshop descriptions carefully. Three of the small group workshops have materials submission deadlines of July 10th. Participants accepted into those workshops will be notified by August 1st. The following sessions are small group workshops, limited to 8 participants selected by the workshop leader: "Short Story Workshop", "Playwriting Workshop", and "Poetry Writing Workshop".

Once again, we are offering the $5 lunch option, payable at the conference. Please sign up for lunch at the time of registration so we know how much to order. As always, the conference is free but we gratefully accept donations to help defray conference expenses. You can donate through Network for Good and type “Conference” in the designation block.

In addition to the Conference on Saturday, there will be an Evening of Readings on Friday, August 19th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the Library. Several recipients of Delaware Division of the Arts Artist Fellowships will be reading from their works.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of a great resource available to writers throughout the State. The Lewes Public Library is fortunate to house The Writer’s Library – the largest collection of literary journals and little magazines in the mid-Atlantic region. You can browse this collection while you are at the conference. The collection also is available to borrow through our interlibrary loan system. Any journal in the catalog can be sent to you to pick up at any public library in the state! Additional information and a list of titles can be found here.
