The Kenyon Review Playwrights Conference is a place of possibility for adults seeking to become more proficient and expressive writers and those seeking to expand their intellectual horizons. We offer professional and personal enrichment in an environment that inspires contemplation and interchange.
For professional development.
Kenyon College has long been known for teaching excellence in writing. Distinguished authors, people in the field, and academic leaders conduct the seminars and set aside one-on-one time with students. Daily lectures and master classes complement the seminars. Yet the heart of the Conference experience is the time to write, to create new work every day to share with peers and professionals for feedback and exploration of the individual’s unique writing voice.For everyone.
Kenyon’s hilltop campus, set among the rolling hills of the Central Ohio farmland, provides the ideal environment for intellectual exploration. In this beautiful setting, each day offers the opportunity for quiet reading, engaging conversation with new friends over coffee, the excitement of a lively seminar, a walk through the village of Gambier on a serene summer evening—a self-guided tour through a week of relaxation and learning.
