 The Writer’s Hotel is a hybrid writers conference that meets each June at a floating campus between three hotels in Midtown Manhattan. TWH is unique. We work with each writer on their writing for months before our Midtown conference.

At our hotel campus in NYC in June, writers enjoy workshops, agent speed dating, editor lectures and genre labs. And each writer gets to read their own work in the city, at KGB Bar Lit, The Cornelia Street Café or Book Culture. Faculty read at The Half King and Kinokuniya. NYC literary history is brought to life by the walking tours we offer, led by NYPL and the Dorothy Parker Society. We also host a spectacular game of Wink, Murder at The Algonquin Hotel. Our action-packed schedule:
