Now in its third year, the four day Lit Camp conference boasts its most impressive faculty for 2015. Pulitzer Prize winners Adam Johnson (The Orphan Master’s Son) and Paul Harding (Tinkers), New York agent Ellen Levine and Amy Williams, editor in chief at Riverhead Publishing Sarah McGrath, author Anthony Marra (A Constellation of Vital Phenomena), plus editors from McSweeney’s, The Rumpus, Zyzyzzva and more.
Only forty writers of fiction, memoir, and narrative nonfiction will be accepted at this conference, co-sponsored by the Grotto. Held at beautiful Mayacamas Ranch in the rolling hills above Calistoga, California, Lit Camp combines daily morning workshops with afternoon panels — even a session of Yoga for Writers taught by Bay Area yoga legend Mark Morford.
Also new for 2015, Lit Camp will be offering a limited number of scholarships. For more details, see litcampwriters.org.
