NCWN at NC Rural Assembly This Week

If you’re heading to the North Carolina Rural Assembly this week, in Raleigh, be sure to swing through the exhibit hall and stop by our table.

Ed Southern, Executive Director of the North Carolina Writers’ Network, will lead the breakout session “(Re)Writing the Rural Narrative” at 3:30 pm on Thursday, November 21.

Other special guests include Connie Stewart, Executive Director of the California Center for Rural Policy; Patrick Torres, the Artistic Director for Raleigh Little Theatre; and the Triangle-based Poetry Fox, who bangs out on-demand poems on vintage typewriters.

The NC Rural Assembly is hosted annually by the NC Rural Center. The two-day event includes breakout sessions; a keynote address; receptions and networking functions; and “Create Your State,” a multimedia presentation and workshop that inspires and empowers community revitalization and development.
