As big-league pitcher Dizzy Dean is said to have quipped, “It ain’t braggin’ if you can back it up.”
So we feel okay about sharing our news this week that we have set an attendance record for our upcoming Spring Conference on Saturday, April 21.
161 registrants, at least, will join us on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
As part of this build-up, we’ve been in the news. We wanted to share some links that highlight our immensely talented faculty:
- Yes! Weekly profiled Naima Coster, who will lead the Master Class in Fiction
- Triad City Beat profiled Emilia Phillips, who will lead the Master Class in Poetry
- The News of Orange County profiled NC Literary Hall of Fame inductee Jill McCorkle, who will give the Keynote Address
- The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature featured Anne Anthony, who will lead the session “How to Start Submitting”
- The News & Observer in Raleigh highlighted our Spring Conference
Clearly, Tar Heel writers are as excited as we are for this Saturday. We hope to see you there!
On-site registration opens at 8:00 am in the MHRA BuildingÂ on UNCG’s campus.
