Below are a number of Writers Conferences happening around the US in April this year.

April 3-7, 2024: Monterey Writers Retreat Conference (Pacific Grove, CA).

Join us on the wondrously scenic and soothing Monterey Peninsula in Pacific Grove for the express purpose of working intimately with experienced author and agent professionals. Know that writers of every kind have journeyed for over a century to this location on the California west coast. They come in search of inspiration, individuality, purpose and vision, but more importantly, to share an understanding that art has preceded their arrival in the form of a brutally beautiful sea and windswept shore.

April 6-7, 2024: South Asian Literary Association Annual Conference (Virtual).

In the 2024 annual meeting of SALA, we take seriously the call for collective action, coalition building and solidarity between Black and South Asian peoples across the world in the aftermath of Black Lives Matter and new awareness about anti-Asian racism.
