Event Details

Ridgefield Writers Conference 2018

Inspiration and Imagination 2018
Due to the overwhelming success of the 2017 Ridgefield Writers Conference, we are expanding the off-year open house to become an inspirational single-evening event on Friday, September 21, with a similar format to the two-day conference.
Amid today’s challenging publishing climate and the pressures of writers’ professional and personal lives, what is the writer’s source of inspiration? How can the writer remain inspired and rekindle inspiration when it wanes? We’ll explore responses to these and other questions through the author-editor relationship and our 2018 conference theme of Inspiration and Imagination. To make the most of this year’s event and the author/editor seminar workshops, bring your writing project and questions.
