The Jackson Hole Writers Conference has united people from all walks of life with their passion for words and stories for almost three decades. Professional and novice writers from Jackson Hole, The United States, and around the world, attend the conference each year.
The conference takes place in Jackson Hole’s Center for the Arts where writers can meet each other and the faculty, share ideas over a glass of wine or beer, and make new contacts while attending the variety of workshops offered.
Manuscript critiques are an important part of our conference, providing a way for you, the writer, to discuss your work one-on-one with experienced writers, editors, and agents. Read through our guidelines on the critiques and be aware that some of the guest faculty authors do not offer critiques; check their bios for this information. Our Silent Auction features critiques from most of our guest faculty, which is a great way to support the conference as well and to get some concentrated feedback on your writing.
At the Jackson Hole Writers Conference, you will have ample opportunity to share your work, whether in the critiques or workshops or at the open mic event! Writers from Maine to California, from Texas to Alaska know their fellow attendees will listen well. Serious writers pour into Jackson Hole each June looking for a fresh, but critical eye on their work. We think they get that, and that’s why they come back year after year. The collective story of the Writers Conference grows alongside the achievements of our guests. This year, that could be you starting a new tradition.
