2nd Annual Conference for Writers
June 4-9, 2008
"Please join us in creating a community of writers in bucolic, convivial, and historic setting. Small workshops (maximum of ten people each) will be led by award-winning writers who have dedicated their lives to the teaching of poetry and prose. Four three-hour, single-genre workshops will focus on the critique and revision of participant writing. Panel presentations by conference faculty and Review staff will provide opportunities for conference participants to talk with working writers and editors about craft, genre, and publishing topics. Author readings and book signings will be offered in the evenings, with one evening reserved for an open-mic conference participant reading."
Distinguished Faculty: Lee K. Abbott (fiction), Joan Connor (fiction), Terrance Hayes (poetry), Suzannah Lessard (nonfiction), Rebecca McClanahan (nonfiction), Peggy Shumaker (poetry)
