About the Writers’ Conference
Creative Crossroads of the Americas
As the largest and most prestigious cross-cultural, bi-lingual literary gathering in the Americas, each February the San Miguel Writers’ Conference & Literary Festival attracts distinguished authors, established and emerging writers, industry experts, teaching professionals, and avid readers from the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.
In addition to the 750 participants in craft and commerce workshops and 12 master classes, another 10,000+ seats are filled during the Conference at eight main stage ballroom events (keynote presentations, expert panels and seminars) with tickets available to the public. It is an inspiring week of intellectual exchange, networking, community building, and cultural celebration.
The popularity and reputation of the Writers’ Conference has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings in 2006, when a small team of volunteers produced a weekend event with 26 attendees.
It has evolved into a spectacular five+ day gathering of thousands of thoughtful individuals who create an international co-cultural community on the lush grounds of the historic Hotel Real de Minas.
