The Blue Ridge Writers’ Conference mission is to educate, inform and inspire writers. In 2021, we are proud to host award-winning author Melissa Fay Greene as our keynote speaker alongside several other talented authors for two days full of literary knowledge. Throughout the conference, writers will network with fellow writers, expand their knowledge base and learn to hone their skills in various breakout sessions. The 24th Annual Conference begins with a Workshop Intensive held on Friday, April 9th from 10:30am-2:30pm and a Writers’ Meet & Greet will take place Friday evening at 5pm. Writers’ Conference sessions begin at 9am on Saturday, April 10th. Book sales from our conference speakers and member writers will also be made available throughout conference events.
