Nimrod Conference for Readers and Writers 2014
 
A huge thanks to everyone who made our 2014 Conference for Readers and Writers our best conference ever! We’re currently in the process of planning for our 2015 Conference, which will take place on the 3rd or 4th weekend in October at The University of Tulsa. Current guests for the 2015 Conference include Karen Russell and Molly Antopol.
 
Karen Russell won the 2012 National Magazine Award for fiction, and her first novel, Swamplandia! (2011), was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. She is the author of two short story collections, St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves and Vampires in the Lemon Groves and Other Stories, as well as the novella Sleep Donation with Greta Gerwig. She is a graduate of the Columbia MFA program, a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, and a 2012 Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin.
 
Molly Antopol’s debut story collection, The UnAmericans was longlisted for the 2014 National Book Award and received a 5 Under 35 Award from the National Book Foundation. She teaches creative writing at Stanford University, where she was a Wallace Stegner Fellow. Her short stories have appeared The New YorkerNimrod, One Story, The Oxford American, American Short Fiction, The Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, The Rumpus and elsewhere.
 
We’ll be announcing more key guests and speakers throughout the spring, and we’ll announce our precise date for 2015 as soon as we have it confirmed, so check back here for more information soon!
