entire faculty is brilliant, funny, touching, witty and moving. It is this environment that breeds growth in the craft of writing and the genesis of storytelling. While many of these writers are staples of the program, Christopher Durang (an institution to American theater) returns from a three-year hiatus from the program. Amy Hempel and Nobel Prize winner Derek Walcott will offer their incredible knowledge on the subjects of poetry and literature for the first time. Over the years, the traditional Writers Conference has tried to answer the call of children’s book writers and screenwriters by offering afternoon electives in these two fields, but

the overwhelming desire for more in-depth events has led to the establishment of 5-day conferences, which should satisfy any writer in these genres. Kicking off July (9-13) is the inaugural Children’s Literature Conference. Because the field of kiddy literature is so extensive, workshops in chapter books, picture books, writing for children’s television and young adult novels will be available. A second aspect of this program will be dedicated to illustrators and a third focuses on readers of children’s books. Aside from lectures and workshops, the program will surely feature the same elbow rubbing and socializing that makes the

Southampton Writers Conference successful. Noted innovator of children’s television (“Rugrats,� “Big Big World,� “Ren and Stimpy�) and full-time Hamptons resident Mitchell Kriegman will be on staff as will Tor Seidler the author of the international hit Wainscott Weasel. Closing the month (July 30-August 3) is a 5day program on screenwriting. This program is broken down into two sections — new and advanced. With film playing such a large role in our society, it is not hard to understand why artists desire to express their thoughts in a medium, which reaches the greatest number of people. For those who are just starting out or those who are looking to put the finishing touches on a script, this program will offer great workshops such as Writing for Emotional Impact, The Art of Adaptation, Writing the Romantic Comedy, Structure: From Idea to Script, Writing is Rewriting, Creating Unforgettable Characters, and Making the Script Your Own: Finding Your Voice. This summer, rent the house out for the month of July and move into the newly renovated dorms on the Southampton campus. Sign up for all three programs, and while the riffraff makes a mess of the Hamptons once again, you’ll be settled in an incredible environment of learning and sharing — a secluded world of writing and literature. The cost of each conference is comparable with those across the country ($1050-$2100). SUNY Southampton offers limited scholarship opportunities as well. For students in MFA programs you can also receive university credits. Applications for all three conferences must be postmarked by May 15. The deadline for scholarship consideration is April 15.
