Faculty Proposals

Every year we invite 50-75 individuals to be a part of our faculty during the San Miguel Writers’ Conference. Our faculty ranges in backgrounds from professional writers, to marketing experts, to professors with extensive knowledge of literature. Each faculty member teaches one or more 90-minute workshop(s) and some appear on panels, teach 3-hour intensive workshops, and do individual consultations. In exchange for teaching, faculty members attend the San Miguel Writers’ Conference as our guest, stay in a lovely home in San Miguel with a gracious host, and receive many other perks and compensation.

If you would like to be considered to be a faculty member, you must submit a 90-min workshop proposal or panel proposal through Submittable, our online proposal submission site:
