Support the Kentucky Women Writers Conference Fund

Kentucky Women Writers Conference is the longest running literary festival of women in the nation, launched by UK in 1979 to showcase the talents and issues unique to female writers. Authors like Alice Walker, Joyce Carol Oates, Barbara Kingsolver, and former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove lead writing workshops, panel discussions, and readings for writers at all stages of development, who come seeking inspiration, fellowship, and practical advice about the publishing industry.

Stipends for featured authors are a significant expense, and ticket sales cover a only a fraction of program costs, meaning everyone who attends is subsidized by the University of Kentucky and your philanthropic support. We also seek gifts for full scholarships for a few deserving writers of particular promise to attend the conference at no-cost.
