Our annual writers’ conferences have made Rutgers-Camden the epicenter of the Delaware Valley literary community.
For twenty years, nationally-known novelists, memoirists, poets, agents and editors have joined Rutgers-Camden students for an intensive summer program of workshops and readings. For MFA students who wish to study during the summer, the conference offers a unique opportunity to meet prominent writers and publishers in the classroom, over coffee, and at readings.
MFA students can participate in the Rutgers-Camden Summer Writers’ Conference twice for credit toward their degree.
