Just got an email about Lit Camp, the Bay Area’s first juried writers’ conference:
Litcamp will feature representatives from the city’s top literary players, including McSweeney’s, The Believer, ZYZZYVA, The Rumpus and 826 Valencia.
What makes Lit Camp different from other writers conferences?
- Its size: Lit Camp is accepting only 40 writers of fiction, narrative nonfiction, and memoir.
- Its location: Lit Camp will be held at Mayacamas Ranch atop rolling hills near Calistoga. This is a secluded retreat center with a salt-water pool, a jacuzzi, a spring-fed pond, an organic garden, hiking trails, and a yoga room (we’ll be doing a session of Yoga for Writers). Accommodations are rustic wooden cabins outfitted with organic linens.
Conference dates: April 4 – 7, 2013
Submission deadline: December 31, 2012
