Please enjoy our highlight video from the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference: Pulitzer, A Century of Excellence: People, Politics, & Public Affairs. The conference took place on July 22-24, 2016, in Grapevine, Texas. The video was produced by high school students who were selected to participate in the Mayborn's annual Multimedia High School Workshop, which runs concurrently with the conference.
For those who attended what was the 12th annual Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference, this video should surely bring back some memories. And for those who are considering joining us at the conference this summer for the first-time, the video should give you a feel for why our Tribe meets up again every summer to renew our passion for the art and craft of writing.
These year's conference is slated for July 21-23 at the Hilton DFW Lakes Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas. Registration is open for the conference, with a reminder that our writing contests – personal essay, reported narrative and book manuscript – are deadlining May 1. The Mayborn's Biography Fellowship with James McGrath Morris deadlines May 12. More information is available on our website, www.themayborn.com.
