GREENSBORO―Pre-registration for the North Carolina Writers’ Network 2015 Spring Conference closed on Sunday. But on-site registration will be available the day of the conference—Saturday, April 18—starting at 8:00 am in the MHRA Building on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
Spring Conference offers intensive workshops in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, as well as publisher exhibits, on-site "Lunch with an Author," readings, an open mic for conference participants, and the all-new program for 2015, Slush Pile Live!
After a record-setting number of pre-registrations, space is only available in the following workshops. Please note, even these offerings are close to full, so space is extremely limited:
- "Excavating Artifacts: Poetry and Documentary Forms" with Rachel Richardson
- "Sentence Aesthetics (Fiction)" with Jacob Paul
- "Conversations in the Lines (Poetry)" with Jaki Shelton Green
- "Triggers, Transitions, & Tone (Children’s)" with Eleanora E. Tate
- "The Art of Branding for Authors" with Faun Finley
General session events are open to all conferencegoers, but the Open Mic is first come, first served. If you haven’t yet registered for Spring Conference but plan on attending, the Network recommends you get there early on Saturday, April 18.
Because of the unprecedented number of attendees this year, the Network thanks registrants in advance for their patience and cooperation as volunteers and staff work to ensure everyone has all the materials they need, and ends up in the right place, by 9:00 am on Saturday.
The nonprofit North Carolina Writers’ Network is the state’s oldest and largest literary arts services organization devoted to writers at all stages of development. For additional information, visit www.ncwriters.org.
