A $350 deposit is required with registration, with balance due July 7.


A limited amount of scholarship aid will be available for deserving writers. To apply for a scholarship, please send your current CV and a brief “statement of writing intent,” describing your habits and goals as a writer, to ed@ncwriters.org no later than June 25.


We recommend that you register early, particularly if you want to stay on-campus. Workshops are small, and they fill fast. No more than 36 registrants, 12 per workshop, are accepted for the Squire Summer Writing Workshops.

$350 deposit is required with registration; the balance is due Wednesday, July 7. (Or you’re welcome to pay the entire fee at once; we won’t mind.)

Please note: Your deposit applies only to your SW21 registration fee. Membership dues and donations must be paid in full.

You may register online here, by phone at 336.293.8844 or 919.308.3228, or by mail to the address below:

Your workshop manuscript must be sent the same day as your registration and deposit (please see Course Descriptions for manuscript requirements). Your registration cannot be processed until we receive and review your workshop manuscript.


Registrants who wish to commute daily from home or a hotel may register at the commuter rate of $425 (for NCWN members) or $575 (for nonmembers). This rate includes all group meals from Friday breakfast to Sunday breakfast, attendance at the workshop sessions of your choice, and any evening programs and readings.

“Tag Alongs”

Out of an abundance of caution, “Tag Along” registrations will not be available for SW21.
