12:00 am
Renewed. Reimagined. Reconfigured. Preparing for a summer event in these uncertain times is challenging. But we can think of no better gift to writers than to engage them with the country’s finest audience as they – and we – emerge from our cocoons. We’re all hungry for exchange and longing to stretch our imaginations. Thank you for your patience as we’ve worked to navigate an ever-changing landscape of safety and event protocols.  Rather than our typical four-day format, the Conference will consist of two smaller Conferences of two full days each–July 17-18 & July 19-20. Both conferences will feature presentations by the same group of speakers and will be held exclusively in the Pavilion and in open-air tents. Our priority is to ensure the safety of our presenters, attendees, staff, volunteers, and community as a whole. To meet the social distancing standards that our medical advisors are recommending, capacity in all venues will be limited (see more details about our COVID-19 protocols at ). Pass sales have closed for the 2021 event, however we are excited to be expanding public viewing opportunities for this summer including: MORE FREE LAWN TALKS – All Pavilion talks (7-8 per conference including a special Barry ...
