GREENVILLE—The North Carolina Writers' Network 2019 Squire Summer Writing Workshops run Thursday-Sunday, July 18-21, on the campus of East Carolina University in Greenville.
The deadline to register is Wednesday, July 3, by midnight!
The Squire Summer Writing Workshops offer an intensive course in a chosen genre (fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry), with ten ninety-minute sessions over the four days of the program. Space in each workshop is limited, so that registrants can work in-depth on their own manuscript samples, as well as their colleagues’, while also studying the principles of the genre with their instructor.
This year's instructors are Alex Albright (Creative Nonfiction); Emily Colin (Fiction); and Dr. Lenard D. Moore (Poetry).
Other features include faculty readings, panel discussions, and open mic sessions—and training sessions—for registrants.
"I have been away from writing for a long time," said a recent attendee. "This weekend was about determining whether or not writing was something I could begin again. As a result of the quality of the instruction, the quality and insightfulness of my fellow students, both my writing and my critical skills have grown and I am committed to writing again. As a result of this residency, I want to be the best writer I can be."
Each registrant should be ready to handle the intensive instruction and atmosphere of the workshop.
Space is limited.
