Join the Carteret Writers for a day of learning, inspiration, and community building at our one-day conference celebrating forty years of serving writers!

In the morning session, Sara Johnson will lead a workshop on “The Importance of Setting” in fiction, Tim Hatcher will teach “Running With An Egg: Creative Nonfiction from idea to publishing” in the creative nonfiction track, and Malaika King Albrecht will lead “Zen Telegrams and other musings” in poetry. After a break and complimentary lunch, Sara Johnson will give the keynote address. In the afternoon workshop session, John DeDakis will teach “Buffing and Polishing: The Art of the Rewrite” in fiction, Tim Hatcher will teach “Running With An Egg: Creative Nonfiction from idea to publishing” again, and Malaika King Albrecht will lead “Zen Telegrams and other musings” again in poetry.
The day will also include informative presentations from Sherri Hollister on Alliance of Independent Authors and Rose Cushing on podcasting, as well as a panel discussion and Q&A on publishing and editing with Robin Miura of Blair Publishing, Ed Southern of NCWN, L. Diane Wolfe of Dancing Lemur Press, and visiting author John DeDakis.
