HippoCamp With Us.

Year One was a blast. Let's do it again.

Hippocampus Magazine's goal is to entertain, educate and engage writers and readers of creative nonfiction. HippoCamp is an extension of our three-fold mission.

This three-day creative writing conference event features 40+ notable speakers, engaging sessions in three tracks, interactive panels, readings, social activities, networking opps and optional, intimate pre-conference workshops in Lancaster, Pa., a city rich in history, arts and culture. All of this, plus meals and snacks, bundled into a great conference rate.
