The Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference has been the place where writers from Alaska and beyond come together to create community and learn how to be better writers. 2020 was a year of transition, but one thing that we’ve learned is that the conference is important to many people.

The 2021 Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference was entirely virtual, but we are pleased to announce that the 2022 conference will be in-person at the beautiful Kachemak Bay Campus in downtown Homer, Alaska.

We are pleased to announce that the 2022 keynote speaker will be Jericho Brown, 2020 Pulitzer Prize winning poet, winner of the American book award, and finalist for the 2020 National Book Award. Read his full bio here.

Please watch this space for announcements about the rest of the faculty and the changes in the conference as it evolves.

As always, updates will be posted on Facebook and on the Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference website.
