Kentucky Women Writers Conference


Women Writers Women Writers

The Kentucky Women Writers Conference turned 25 in 2004, marking the occasion with special events celebrating it as one of Kentucky’s most prominent literary events. Past conferences have included writers as diverse as Mary Ann Taylor-Hall, Gwendolyn Brooks, Barbara Kingsolver, and Andrea Dworkin, just to name a few.

Throughout its history, the conference has served as an important resource for Lexington. Though the organizers have concerted historical and philosophical reasons for featuring women’s voices, the conference itself is not just for women. Each year, many men attend the event, both for its observations on the writing process and for the exposure to provocative ideas. As a nonprofit organization, KYWWC invests in furthering a broad range of literacy and literature projects for the entire Bluegrass region.
