GREENSBORO, NC—Beat the upcoming price increase and pre-register for the North Carolina Writers’ Network 2014 Spring Conference on Saturday, April 12, in the MHRA Building at UNCG. While on-site registration will be available, members will save more than 25 percent by registering now.
Our faculty is at the forefront of the North Carolina literary scene, and they’ve been all over the news. Here’s what they’ve been up to:
- Carrie Knowles, who along with Peggy Payne will lead the workshop, “Market Your Book—with Imagination,” was recently named the 2014 Piedmont Laureate.
- Paul Stroebel, who will sit on the “Writing about War” panel with Robin Greene and Sharon D. Raynor, was featured last week on WUNC’s The State of Things with Frank Stasio.
- Linda Rohrbough will teach attendees “How to Make an Elevator Pitch.” She was featured recently on Who’s Talking? with D.G. Martin on 97.9 FM WCHL.
- Two of our fiction faculty members have new novels out: Kim Church published Byrd this month, and Drew Perry has been on tour for his new novel, Kids These Days.
- Kelly Starling Lyons’ children’s book, Hope’s Gift, was named a 2013 Okra Pick and was showcased at the 2013 National Book Festival in Washington, DC. She’ll lead a workshop titled, “So You Want to Write a Children’s Book.”
- Jacinta V. White will lead a special session of “One City, One Prompt.” The NCWN Spring Conference is one of a handful of exclusive venues for this national program.
Not to mention our impressive workshop leaders, Nancy Peacock and Jonathan Farmer, who will lead the Two-Part Fiction and Two-Part Creative Nonfiction workshops, respectively. Or our distinguished poets, Mark Smith-Soto and John Thomas York; or the inimitable duo of Steve Mitchell and Carol Roan, who will lead a workshop titled “Writing from Experience.”
