The first annual Ink & Letters conference will be held in Marfa, Texas—hence the name "Marfa Meetup". It will be an opportunity to come together to see and hear from other creatives. Conference speakers range from artist to entrepreneur to academician. If you are interested in finding out more about the conference or presenting your own research, creative or scholarly work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. All sessions will be held at First Baptist Church of Marfa, unless otherwise noted.
Sunday, March 15
While the Marfa Meetup does not officially convene until Monday morning, attendees are encouraged to arrive early in Marfa to take in what this cultural oasis has to offer. Recommended: a tour of Chinati.
