About the Conference

Gemini Ink, San Antonio’s literary arts center, is holding its 3rd annual Writers Conference July 20-22nd, 2017 at the historic downtown El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel. The conference focus is "Writing the New Century" and will explore the role writing plays in shaping the personal, social, and political consciousness of our 21st century. We seek a diverse array of perspectives on this topic and aim to engage in a dynamic conversation on the many ways the literary arts can be a catalyst for transformation in our contemporary American society.

Whether you're new to writing, seeking to recharge your craft, or looking to make connections, the Gemini Ink Writers Conference offers a vibrant literary community of regional and national authors, editors, and publishing professionals.

We have a wonderful line-up of featured award-winning authors: Dr. Norma Cantú, Martín Espada, Anel Flores, Veronica Golos, Debra Monroe, and Pulitzer Prize winner Vijay Seshadri.

The 3-day conference will comprise a full schedule of workshops, readings, panel presentations and a small press book fair, with free evening events and after-parties.

Join us and our featured authors in South Texas this July and come away with a wealth of new information and advice for your own writing life. Expand your craft. Explore new and challenging creative territories and partake in some Serious. Literary. Fun!

Your conference gave us a chance to read and showcase our work and connect with many emerging and award-winning writers and editors in a smaller yet dynamic, accessible, warm and inclusive environment—a very special writer's conference in the heart of South Texas. Thank you for this experience, and I look forward to many more.
