2015 Conference

We’ve all heard that “the pen is mightier than the sword.” But what can the pen do in the face of environmental crises, and how can the pen help us to figure out ways we can live on the world together?

For this year’s Great Plains Writers’ Conference, our 39th annual, we’ve gathered together writers, scholars, activists, farmers, and scientists to discuss that very question.

We’re planning a series of conversations that we hope will continue long after the events are over. Take a look at our poster, learn more about our featured guests Vandana Shiva and Kristen Iversen, discover our range of presenters, and preview our panel discussions.
