In the commercialized gauntlet that is the period of days following Thanksgivingâ€”as “Black Friday” becomes a week-long event and “Cyber Monday” deals can be had around the clockâ€”we’d like to encourage you to remember the non-profit organizations in your end-of-year giving plans.
The North Carolina Writers’ Network connects, promotes, and serves the writers of this state. We provide education in the craft and business of writing, opportunities for recognition and critique of literary work, resources for writers at all stages of development, support for and advocacy of the literary heritage of North Carolina, and a community for those who write. The North Carolina Writersâ€™ Network believes that writing is necessary both for self-expression and a healthy community, that well-written words can connect people across time and distance, and that the deeply satisfying experiences of writing and reading should be available to everyone.
From the unprecedented crowd at October’s 2014 North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame induction ceremony (some 300 strong), to the 200-odd attendees at this year’s Fall Conference in Charlotte, NCWN is committed to encouraging writers of all stripes, from newbies to New York Times bestsellers.
