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.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 2024 conference on May 18-21 at the beautiful Kachemak Bay Campus in downtown Homer, Alaska.

This year, we will be exploring the theme “Wonder in the Wounded World” and the myriad ways we can be stronger writers and readers. Not only will there be four-days of craft classes, agent and editor meetings, panel discussions, readings by the participants and the faculty, but we’ll have more chances for folks to interact with each other and form the community of writers that sustains us when we return to our desks.

We hope that participants of the conference leave with stronger writing tools and a strengthened resolve to keep putting their words to the page. Now, more than ever, every writer’s stories, poems, essays, novels, and more need to be nourished.

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