The 2020 Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference

We’re preparing a full weekend lineup of speakers and panelists you’ll want to see as we present the 16th annual Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference. Speakers like the New York Times’ Peter Baker and Susan Glasser from the New Yorker. Also, Alfredo Corchado, Julian Aguillar, Doug Swanson, Hasan Syeda, Andrea Valdez, Gromer Jeffers, Mike Wilson, Skip Hollandsworth and many others.

It’ll be different this year, all online. But we’re planning a number of special extras to help recreate the networking connections and spirit of camaraderie that sets the Mayborn Conference apart. Reserve your Zoom link now.

Make plans now for October 16 – 18. Your cost? Just $99.

Our theme for this year couldn’t be timelier: “20/20: Bringing Truth Into Focus.” Journalism and storytelling are facing enormous pressures to remain focused and relevant. At a time when reporters and broadcasters are often referred to as enemies of the people, the importance of staying laser-focused on facts and truth is fundamental to keeping audiences informed and equipped to act.

2020 has been a momentous year. With a global pandemic, economic crisis and a movement for social justice and police reform, journalists and writers are working harder than ever before to cut through the clutter to bring truth into focus.

You can be a part of it all for only $99.

Livestreaming via Zoom.

All keynotes and planned sessions and panels will be livestreamed and archived on the Mayborn Conference website. You’ll receive access codes and instructions prior to the event. Watch for further Mayborn communications with additional details.

A full weekend of awesomeness, just like every year.

As always, this year’s conference will run from Friday evening, October 16, to Sunday morning, October 18. We’ve lined up outstanding speakers for our Friday Southwest Soiree, our Saturday evening Literary Lights awards event, and a Sunday closer.

Follow www.themayborn.com for the latest details.
