Hippocampus Magazine's goal is to entertain, educate and engage writers and readers of creative nonfiction. HippoCamp is an extension of our three-fold mission. This three-day creative writing conference event features notable speakers, engaging sessions in three tracks, interactive panels, readings, social activities, networking opps and optional, intimate pre- and post-conference workshops in Lancaster, Pa., a city rich in history, arts and culture.
