We hope you'll join us for the 2019 Writer's Institute

The Midwest's Premier Writing Conference

4 days of education, entertainment, and writing inspiration

Welcome. The UW-Madison Writers’ Institute is now in its 29th year. Much of its success has to do with you – our writing community. Many of our writers have attended previous Writers’ institutes, or, are part of our online and in-person classes. Some of our writers attend our other events – the Write By The Lake Retreat and our Weekend With Your Novel fall event – still others attend our one day classes or look to our writing staff for critiques of their writing.

No matter what the level of involvement, we are all part of this common unity of writers. At no other time during the year do we find so many of us joining together for an extended weekend that encourages us to explore our craft, prefect our pitching and marketing abilities, and share our goals and wishes with others.
