General Information

Bread Loaf: unique place, unique people, unique setting. If you’re a goal-oriented, intense student, you’ll meet people like yourself. If you enjoy deep emotion, you’ll find that too. The accommodations are comfortable; the morning hikes are great. You’ll love the music jams, and the independence is such a relief from school bells and school work deadlines.

Though the conference, as the name suggests, has a New England location and a New England flavor, we accept applications from high school juniors anywhere in the country. Attending students are responsible for their own transportation. The nearest major airport is about 50 miles away in Burlington Vermont.

See information below, as well as information and photos from past conferences, for a better idea of what this conference is all about.

Our next New England Young Writers’ Conference (NEYWC) is scheduled for May 14-17, 2015.  Click here for the NEYWC Brochure 2015.

This will be the 31st year of the conference.

FYI: For those interested in Middlebury College there will be a Middlebury College information session at the Conference. Unfortunately the Admissions office is not open for formal tours or appointments the week of exams.  More information can be found at:

The application process for the conference begins in the Fall.

Applications are now available from this site. (Check the tabs to the left.)
Applications for 2015 must be postmarked by November 12th, 2014!
