The North Carolina Writers’ Network will host The Cabin Fever Conference 2020, April 16-18, entirely online. This event offers 630 minutes of instruction plus Faculty Readings and an Open Mic.
Registration is open.
Another exciting feature of The Cabin Fever Conference 2020 is the Virtual Exhibit Hall. We love the exhibt halls at our physical conferences; they offer a wonderful opportunitiy to support local publishers and literary organizations and talk face-to-face with working professionals.
At this year’s Virtual Exhibit Hall, many exhibitors will offer special pricing for conference attendees.
We’ll take some time over the next several days to introduce them all, but here are a few of the great folks who’ll join us at The Cabin Fever Conference 2020:

The Greensboro Review
Some content available on website for free!
The Greensboro Review, a literary magazine published by The MFA in Creative Writing Program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, has been willfully and defiantly â€œold schoolâ€ since itâ€™s founding in 1966. Back then, it appeared more or less exactly as it does today, offering readers a simple cover, no distracting graphics, and a complete and total focus on the quality of the text. Recent authors include Lena Khalaf Tuffaha, whose poem â€œMiss Sahar Listens to Fairuz Sing â€˜The Beesâ€™ Path,’â€ won the Robert Watson Literary Prize for Poetry, and Sarah Heying, whose short story â€œThe Chair Kickersâ€™ Tale,â€ won the same prize in Fiction. Past contributors include Dan Albergotti; NC Literary Hall of Fame inductee and former NC Poet Laureate Fred Chapell;Â Philip Gerardâ€”recipient of the 2019 NC Award for Literature, the stateâ€™s highest civilian honorâ€”and Emilia Phillips.
