The 12th Annual Gold Rush Writers’ Conference will be held May 5 – 7th in the picturesque Gold Country town of Mokelumne Hill at the historic Hotel Leger.

The goal of the Gold Rush Writers’ Conference is to provide creative writers of all levels a chance to participate one-on-one with established professionals through workshops, lectures, panels and readings. Limited to approximately 80 participants, the Gold Rush Writers’ Conference prides itself on its intimacy and charm. Opportunities abound for networking and developing community with like-minded individuals who share a passion for the written word. Even those who just love to listen are encouraged to attend. The Gold Rush Writers’ Conference was founded in 2005 by New York Times best-selling author and Mokelumne Hill resident Antoinette May with the help of a dedicated group of fellow writers.

The Gold Rush Writers’ Conference draws participants from the tri-county region of Tuolumne, Calaveras, and Amador, with some attendees traveling from as far away as Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond. Over the years, nearly 800 individuals have benefited from the conference and numerous attendees choose to return year-after-year.

Past attendee Marianne Barisonek, a freelance journalist from Portland, Oregon, states, “I’ve attended twice and would go again in a heartbeat. The quality of the workshops has been outstanding. You’ll meet interesting people and be inspired. If you want to try a writer’s conference without spending a fortune, this is a good place to start.”
