This capitol city set on the Susquehanna River is known for its vibrant restaurant scene, historical sites, the National Civil War museum, and nearby Amish Country and antique shops. The 2014 event will include guest speakers, literary readings, professional events, and workshops. A reading by George Saunders will open the Convention.

NeMLA particularly welcomes sessions that relate to our location, including the River, the Civil War, and German immigration, as well as 2014 Anniversaries including World War I and the Civil Rights Act. In addition, NeMLA 2014 will have a special emphasis on drama and creative writing.
