"Where Art's Alive"

100 S Main St. North, Berea, KY 40403


The Appalachian Writer’s Conference, or AWC23, is a literary workshop that offers beginning and intermediate writers a chance to sharpen existing skills and learn new techniques from award-winning, seasoned novelists, non-fiction writers, memoirists, and poets - and now podcasters turned book authors! It all happens in the heart of Appalachia in Berea, Kentucky, the state’s Artisan Capital, where guests will stay at Historic Boone Tavern Hotel and enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, shopping at the many craft stores, and have a chance to meet Kentucky Artisans.
Come join us!
