Summer Residency Still Open

I’ve talked to several Network members in the last few days who asked if the Squire Summer Writing Residency workshops are already full.

They’re not.  We still have space available in all three workshops: poetry with Cathy Smith Bowers, fiction with Tommy Hays, and creative nonfiction with Catherine Reid.

Please visit to sign up.  Remember that the deadline is July 8, so don’t put it off.

Like a good parent, I love the Spring Conference, the Summer Residency, and the Fall Conference equally – but, to be honest, I like the Summer Residency best.  Last year’s was a blast.  Because of the smaller size and the intimate environment, we all get to know each other a little better than we do at the Spring or Fall Conferences.  This year’s will have the advantage of being held on the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountain campus of Warren Wilson College (and, for those who came last year, I’ve been assured there will be no bike races anywhere near the campus).

Please come join us for what’s sure to be a weekend of outstanding writing, learning, and – pardon the pun – networking.
