The Solstice Writers Conference features daily lectures, workshops in poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction and nightly readings by noted writers and poets.

This eight-day immersion into workshops, panel discussions, readings, and book signings (plus our dance night and a day off for R&R), is designed for those who are passionate about the art of literature and the fellowship of other writers. Panel discussions with literary agents, editors, publishers, and our faculty will also enable students to learn about all aspects of the literary journey, from manuscript preparation to the ups and downs of submitting and publishing one’s work.

Pine Manor College is situated on 60 wooded acres just five miles from downtown Boston. The campus features an architectural blend of buildings of a former estate and modern facilities. Accommodations are available for those attending the Summer Solstice Writers Conference in student housing on campus.
