Set in the West: Cultures Old and New

The Women Writing the West annual conference returns to Tucson after 14 years.

Ventana ResortWe will convene at Loew’s Ventana Canyon Resort in the Tucson foothills in the lush Sonoran Desert. Set at the foot of soaring cliffs and ringed by saguaro cactus, the resort boasts every amenity including award-winning cuisine, two heated pools and a spa. Tucson has recently been named a UNESCO World City of Gastronomy and the chefs at Ventana Canyon take the challenge seriously. A scenic hiking trail begins at the edge of the property. We have negotiated a conference rate of $139 plus tax for this charming venue.

Our conference team is planning a full program of speakers and panelists to teach and inspire you. You will also have an opportunity to submit work for critique sessions. Have a finished manuscript or work in progress? Sign up to pitch your work to agents and editors.


Please watch this space for more information coming soon as we firm up the details.
