Hippocampus Magazine is an online publication set out to entertain, educate and engage writers and readers of creative nonfiction. HippoCamp is an in-the-flesh extension of that three-fold mission.
This three-day event will feature notable speakers, engaging sessions in three tracks, interactive panels, readings, social activities, networking opps, readings, and optional, intimate pre- and post-conference workshops. We can’t wait to tell you more — and welcome you to Lancaster, Pa., a city rich in history, arts and culture.
HippoCamp is formatted in the style of a professional, industry conference. Expect to learn a lot and return home with a notebook and brain full of ideas!
To give you a sense of what this conference is all about, a sneak preview, if you will:

— 12-15 attendee-led break-out sessions

The official conference website will be updated continuously with new details.
Conference planning made possible by a dedicated committee of on- and off-site volunteers, most of whom are also on the Hippocampus Magazine staff:
Conference Chair: Donna Talarico
Early on, and before registrations went on sale, Donna created a personal Indiegogo campaign to help with initial support. The following individuals contributed $20 or more, and they are listed here as part of their “perk.” Many thanks to these folks, and everyone who helped out with the campaign as many did not ask for a perk and/or recognition (I labeled them “anonymous” here just because).
Hippocampus Magazine also would like to express thanks to our sponsors and promotional partners.
