Mark your calendars for a momentous celebration of literature and legacy from February 29 to March 1, 2024, as ASU hosts the 27th ASU Writers Conference in honor of the esteemed Elmer Kelton. Set in the vibrant city of San Angelo, TX, this year’s conference stands as a testament to the enduring impact of Kelton's work and his contributions to the literary world.
Distinguished for its accessibility, the ASU Writers Conference stands out as a premier literary event in Texas, welcoming presenters and guests without any registration or attendance fees. This unique approach underscores our commitment to fostering a thriving literary community and ensuring that the insights and inspirations of the conference are available to all.
This year, we are thrilled to spotlight Manuel Muñoz as our featured writer. Muñoz’s work, celebrated for its depth and insight, has earned critical acclaim across the country, making him an ideal figure to headline an event dedicated to literary excellence.
The two-day conference will offer a rich program filled with engaging discussions, readings, and workshops led by distinguished authors and literary figures. Participants will have the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the creative process, explore diverse genres, and engage with the themes that resonate through modern storytelling.
