Mendocino Coast Writers Conference
« on: January 29, 2008, 12:40:41 PM »
This is a great, small, personal conference held in Northern California up on the wild coast near the 19th century-era town of Mendocino - limited to around 100 people -- lots of personal attention.  I've gone twice and loved it each time. The Pacific Ocean is right there below the bluffs, the fog, the quiet, it's a great atmosphere to write in, and the staff/faculty are totally enthusiastic and giving.  Such fun to talk about writing all day long! I think this year's conference is in early August.  Not expensive, though you have to drive there from San Francisco if you fly in to SFO. Google the name for the current website.  Cheers! :yes:

This sounds totally intimate and perhaps an insular foray into the conference world for me. I live two hours away. Thanks for the heads-up. It's on my consideration list.

Thanks for letting us know about this one. Just an FYI for people planning to drive there...the 3rd is the SF marathon, so traffic will be a bear if you have to go through the city to get home from Mendocino.

Write till your ink be dry, and with your tears
Moist it again, and frame some feeling line
That may discover such integrity.

Wish I had seen this a few months earlier.  Mendocino is driving distance for me.
