The Great Plains Writers Conference was co-founded by Professors Charles Woodard and David Allan Evans of the SDSU English Department in 1976 to call attention to contemporary regional writers and their works.
Today the Great Plains Writers Conference brings writers and readers together to create and celebrate literature. GPWC features readings of contemporary work as well as workshops to support craft development for emerging and established writers. Designed to create an intimate atmosphere where attendees can meet other writers and lovers of literature, the GPWC aims to build cultural networks in a rural state and beyond.
