Join writers Dani Shapiro, Jim Shepard, and Ron Carlson, along with One Story magazine March 21-27th, 2010 for the Sirenland Writers Conference. Experience intensive, advanced fiction and memoir workshops in an intimate, supportive environment at one of the most beautiful five star luxury hotels in the world—Le Sirenuse—in Positano, Italy.

Here’s what participants from Sirenland 2009 have to say:

“Sirenland is unparalleled in its generosity to writers and its gracious commitment to helping participants to excavate their truest voice. By exploring structure, tone, intention and impulse, the conference makes room for both craft and art with the backdrop of a stunning setting.”—Tessa Blake (Sirenland 2009)

“The conference exceeded my expectations in virtually every way and even fulfilled many I didn’t know I had (or should have!). From the critiquing and teaching methods as a whole, to all the great friends and colleagues I made, to of course the amazing surroundings, both outside and in, the conference was a joy.”—Eric Grunwald (Sirenland 2009)

“I left Sirenland feeling it is less of a place than a concept, created by a small group of gifted artists who understand writing as a calling, and that those among us who must heed the song crave a safe and beautiful haven, enchantment, community and nurturance. Sirenland gives us this and so much more. It feeds the soul, and like a dream you want to return to, it lingers.”—Adele Bertai (Sirenland 2009)
