During the weekend of August 10 and 11, Hippocampus Magazine is hosting a series of online readings, craft sessions, and discussions all related to creative nonfiction! This weekend-long event is in place of HippoCamp: A Conference for Creative Nonfiction Writers, which is on hiatus.

A major highlight of our in-person conference was A Night of Nonfiction: Debut Author Readings & Panel Discussion. Now, for the third time, we’re bringing this beloved event online.

Time: 6 to 8 p.m. (ET), with a 15-minute intermission
Place: Online, via Zoom webinar
Cost: Free/Pay-What-You-Wish (suggested donation $10)
Registration: Open June 15 (page will be updated with link then)

Night of Nonfiction Line-Up

We’re incredibly excited to announce this year’s debut CNF author line-up, as well as a featured reader who will cap off the readings. (It also makes us a little too giddy that we can use the phrase “we’ve got authors from A to Z.”!)

We’re so pleased to welcome the following writers, including a few past contributors, conference attendees, and volunteers:

… with special guest Lilly Dancyger, who just celebrated the launch of First Love: Essays on Friendship, as our featured reader.

There’s such a variety here in theme, subgenre/format, and backgrounds and life experiences, and we can’t wait for ALL OF IT! In the meantime, we hope you will explore these books (if you have not already!)

 Note: This post will be updated in the next day or two with a link to our overall “HippoCamp” Weekend page, which will be continually updated with more details for the entire weekend, including speaker bios, photos, and session descriptions. 

What else is happening during the weekend?

This exciting online creative nonfiction event will also feature these four sessions:

  • HippoCamp Minis Part 1: CRAFT – Saturday morning/early afternoon – five 10-minute talks on an aspect of craft
  • CNF Deep Dives: Saturday afternoon (choose from a few options)
  • HippoCamp Minos Part 2: PUBLISHING & PROMOTION – Sunday afternoon – five 10-minute talks on an aspect of publishing and promoting your work
  • An Evening With the Editors: Small Press Editor Roundtable – Sunday evening
