Writers in Paradise 2011

Sometimes living in paradise leads you to forget about the rest of the world. Which led me to completely drop the ball on writing about Eckerd College's Writers' Conference. I can't say enough good things about Eckerd and the tons of cultural happenings there (not to mention all the rad volunteering of its students & staff), so better late than never?

The conference wraps up tomorrow, and the professional writers (Richard Russo, Julianna Baggott, et al.) teaching the closed courses during the day have also been giving lectures that are open to the public in the evenings. I'm kicking myself for not having commuted out there every night this week.

Tonight at 8 p.m. Laura Lippman and Tom Perrotta will speak about the magic of writing fiction. Tomorrow is the final lecture with author (and Eckerd alum) Dennis Lehane.
