Every June, PW members have the opportunity to attend a week-long writing conference/retreat at Villa Glen, on the shores of Glen Lake. For many members, this is the highlight of the PW experience: writers have opportunities to discuss their craft with others who share their passion, daily small group meetings offer help and support with specific pieces of writing, large group gatherings build camaraderie, and ample time for writing is always provided. Several small, optional craft talks by members are offered throughout the week. And there are many opportunities for informal discussion and activities.
In addition, each conference presents a professional writer as a keynote speaker; back for the 2017 keynote is poet Mary Ann Samyn. In recent years, presentations from Laura Kasischke, Jack Driscoll, Heather Sellers and Gerry LaFemina have stimulated thought and discussion—and writing. Also, each conference ends with a “read-around,” a gathering allowing a chance for everyone to hear a small sample of each writer’s work.
