Writers in Paradise 2013

Event Details

  • Join best-selling authors Ann Patchett (Bel Canto and State of Wonder), Ben Mezrich (The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook), and Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Shutter Island, and Live by Night) for the Ninth Annual Eckerd College Writers' Conference: Writers in Paradise, on the shores of Boca Ciega Bay at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, January 19-27, 2013.

    This intensive eight-day experience of intimate workshop classes, roundtables, panel discussions, readings, book signings and cocktail receptions is designed for those who are passionate about writing.

    The tranquil seaside landscape sets the tone for this informal gathering of writers, teachers, editors, and literary agents. The intimate size and secluded location of the Eckerd College Writers' Conference allow you the time and opportunity to share your manuscripts, critique one another's work and discuss the craft of writing with experts and peers who can help guide you to the next level. After eight days of workshopping and engagement with peers and professionals in your field, you will leave this unique opportunity with a new and better understanding of your craft and solid ideas about how to find an agent and get published.

    At the final Evening Reading Series Event, Co-directors Dennis Lehane and Sterling Watson will announce The Best of the 2013 Eckerd College Writers' Conference. Winners will be published in the conference's literary journal, Sabal.
