Last call for the Cuenca Writers’ Conference

Online registration closes on May 18, so don't delay. Registration at the event is expensive.

Want to connect with new ideas, fresh perspectives, and an international community of writers?
Join us in attending the 5-day Cuenca International Writer’s Conference beginning Monday, May 28, in downtown Cuenca. This conference will feature hands-on workshops and training sessions in all genres of writing and in all areas of expertise…from novice to expert… in a setting that will supercharge your creativity.

Ninety-minute workshops highlight the craft of writing in fiction, non-fiction, short stories, memoirs, drama and screenplays including classes on the business side of writing and publishing.

A Taste of Cuenca compliments your first day with a boutique of local handicrafts including silver jewelry, journals, shawls, hats, pillows, and stunning inlaid wood trays. When you buy a handmade alpaca scarf or hat, a special program donates a matching item to indigenous highland people in need. Also, Pachari chocolates, Patricio of Corvell, and other food presenters will offer free samples and sell their wares.

Enjoy a glass of wine and watch the fashion show of a young Ecuadorian designer whose creations feature elements from nature. A live violinist accompanies the aspiring models, along with commentary about Cuenca and the natural inspirations for the clothing. A raffle for attendees will happen directly after the show that begins at 3:30 PM.
