Arizona State University’s writers conference, “Desert Nights, Rising Stars,” will be held Feb. 23-26, with the early registration discount ending on Oct. 31.

The conference, sponsored by ASU’s Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing, offers writers of all levels the chance to hone their craft in the classroom with distinguished writers. It will feature discussion classes, master classes, faculty readings, panel discussions and a question-and-answer session.

Participants can expect an experience that is intimate and affordable, such as the master classes, which will offer six hours of instruction, spread over three days, in groups of no more than 10.

General registration for the conference is $375 ($335 early-registration discount through Oct. 31). Master class tuition is $125 (conference registration required). Additional discounts are available for Piper Friends and other ASU-affiliated groups. For more information and to register, see or call (480) 965-6018.
