Longleaf Writers Conference
The Longleaf Writers Conference includes a full week of intensive and generative writing workshops, one-day seminars, agent consultations, school outreach programs, and special social events.
The conference, which takes place in Seaside, provides an opportunity for all levels of writers to celebrate writing, to network, and to hone their craft in a beautiful setting among generous and celebrated writers and poets.
Other components of the conference are the Scholars and Fellows Program, including the Celia Baker Veteran Scholarship, as well as local outreach programs for youth at local public schools.
Seaside greets travelers with a warm welcome – and you’ll recognize it as soon as you see it. Perfectly pastel houses, white picket fences and manicured lawns look like they’re straight out of a movie. (And, in fact, they are – The Truman Show was filmed here.)
Stroll or bike your way between restaurants, art galleries and boutique shops, or connect with family and friends at the central square.Neighborhood Details
