Each week of the MVICW Summer Writers’ Conference consists of daily seminars in poetry and fiction, as well as one-on-one manuscript consultations, panel discussions, readings, and a celebratory dinner with faculty. For MVICW’s 11th year, we have broadened the scope of our seminars in each genre to offer poets and fiction writers the option to focus more time in their specific areas of concentration. For more information on each week’s offerings, please click on the links below for full details.
