Welcome to HippoCamp!


During this opening program, members of the conference committee will give you a preview of the sessions, panels and other nuts-and-bolts information to help you plot your schedule and, gosh darn it, get you excited for the evening and next two and a half days!

You’ll also hear from a few past HippoCamp attendees on how they made the most of the conference and some might even share some success stories that happened as a result of our creative nonfiction conference!

Opening Keynote to immediately follow.

Memoirist Beverly Donofrio will kick things off with what promises to be an inspirational opening keynote about sharing your stories.
