2017 Creative Nonfiction Writers' Conference
Personal. Public. Published.
Now in its 5th year, the CNF Writers' Conference brings writers, editors, and agents together for panels and presentations about the art, craft, and business of narrative nonfiction.
In today's publishing climate, personal stories driven by a strong first-person voice are taking on the most important topics of our time. Meaning: your story matters more than ever. And whether you're writing your first essay, article, or proposal–or have a couple of books under your belt–the conference has something for you.
