2014 Kentucky Women Writers Conference

Sept.12-13, 2014

There are so many ways to become involved with the Kentucky Women Writers Conference, and foremost among them is simply to attend the Conference in Lexington in September 2014. The Kentucky Women Writers Conference is the longest running literary festival of women in the nation. An annual event launched by the University of Kentucky in 1979, it has become a premier destination for the celebration of women's arts and letters.

The incredible caliber of writers and artists that we bring to Lexington each year would not be possible without the ability to pay them a fair fee, and that ability depends upon generous partnerships between the University of Kentucky and many key supporters.
