Founded in 1962, the Cape Cod Writers Center Conference is one of the oldest on-going writers’ conferences in the nation and has become a summer tradition on Cape Cod. This year’s CCWC Conference takes place Thursday, August 3rd through Sunday, August 6th at the Resort and Conference Center in Hyannis, Massachusetts (35 Scudder Avenue).
The four-day conference will feature Keynote Speaker BARBARA SHAPIRO, author of the New York Times bestselling novels The Art Forger and The Muralist. Conference attendees may choose from a wide range of courses in literary genres. Among them are; “Forensic Investigations,” taught by MICHELLE CLARK, a Medicolegal Death Investigator; “Poetry and the Political Landscape” taught by DANIELLE LEGROS GEORGE, Boston’s Poet Laureate; and “The Ethics of First Person Narration” by RICHARD HOFFMAN, Senior Writer-in-Residence at Emerson College.
Beyond the twenty-eight courses in writing, promotion, and social media, participants can register for agent advice on query letters or request a manuscript mentoring session. Attendees will also have an opportunity to pitch their books, participate in critique sessions, engage in lunchtime roundtable discussions, and read their works in evening gatherings.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
