2021 Lakefly Writers Conference + Writing Contests


We are sad to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Lakefly Writers Conference due to Covid-19. While the Planning Committee considered a virtual conference, many elements of the conference would be missing, such as door prizes, Marketplace, group luncheon, open mic night and contest awards ceremony.  Simply put, the limitations of a virtual conference will not allow us to create the quality conference for which we have become known.

While the decision is deeply disappointing, we are committed to resuming the conference with support from the Oshkosh Public Library. Mark for your calendar for May 6 and 7, 2022, at the Oshkosh Convention Center - it’s sure to be a special event!

In the meantime, please consider submitting to the 2021 Lakefly Writing Contests. Categories are Short Short Fiction, Short Story, Poetry, and Teen Short Story. No entry fee; cash prizes! Must reside in Wisconsin, sorry! Deadline is Feb. 26th. For more information and submission guidelines, please click here.
