Lost & Found

While we hope everyone takes something unexpected away from our Fall Conference, we ended up taking home something we did not mean to – If any 2012 Fall Conference registrants lost a scarf at the conference hotel, please e-mail a description to ed@ncwriters.org, and we will send you your garment.  (Do scarves count as garments?)

The Price of Being Popular

The 2012 Fall Conference of the North Carolina Writers’ Network still has plenty of room for you and for all writers, working in all genres, at all levels of skill and experience, all across this state and beyond.

Southern Fictions/Southern Identities this Sunday

When I took this job, I was pretty confident in my ability to perform most every task the Network would need its director to do – except for one.  And that one is, for a nonprofit, kind of a biggie. I sincerely dislike asking for money, known in the nonprofit world as fundraising.  I am […]

Hotel Rooms for NCWN Fall Conference

I heard from a couple of members yesterday who said they’d tried to reserve a room at the DoubleTree Hotel for the 2011 Fall Conference, but were told that the Network’s room block was full. The room block was, indeed, full, but I spoke to the DoubleTree yesterday and they have agreed to add some […]
