Squire Summer Writing Residency Update

The Hilton New Bern/Riverfront, site of this year’s Squire Summer Writing Residency, told me today that the Network has filled its block of reserved guest rooms, and that they have no more vacancies for the weekend of July 14 – 17. All three SR11 workshops are still open for registrants, but those who wish to […]

Summer Stories

The following is a message from author and editor Liza Wieland, who will lead the fiction workshop at the 2011 Squire Summer Writing Residency, July 14 – 17 in New Bern: “I first had a sense of myself as a writer when I attended a conference much like the Squire Summer Writing Residency, in Atlanta, […]

It’s Too Hot to Set Your Pants on Fire

The following is a message from author Virginia Holman, who will lead the creative nonfiction workshop at the 2011 Squire Summer Writing Residency, July 14 – 17 in New Bern: “Writing and reading are both solitary endeavors.  So why take a writing class?

Go Here! Go Now!

Personally, I find it hard to believe that we’re already in the second half of June, but it’s harder to argue with the calendar.  That means we’re rapidly approaching the registration deadline for the 2010 Squire Summer Writing Residency.  Don’t forget that the Residency is the only Network get-together with a cap on registrants, and […]

Two Weeks

Please visit www.ncwriters.org to sign up.  […]
