Squire Summer Writing Workshops 2022

Davidson College, Davidson, NC

The 2022 Squire Summer Writing Workshops (SW22) are three intensive workshops with accomplished instructors, a chance to share your work with other dedicated writers, and a unique opportunity to bond with writers from across the state and beyond: masked, socially distanced, safe, but—at long last—in person.

SW22 will begin Thursday afternoon, July 14, with registration and check-in at this year’s venue, Davidson College. After an opening program that evening, workshop sessions in the genre of your choice—Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, or Poetry—will begin Friday morning and continue until mid-day Sunday, July 17.

Those 15 hours of workshop time will create a community on common ground, a safe place to refine and polish your work, and maybe the opportunity and inspiration to try something new. Morning and afternoon breaks between workshop sessions give writers a leisurely writing period.

The seven group meals will be followed by panel discussions, readings by instructors and residents, and other special programs, allowing participants rare insight into the craft and business of writing.

PLEASE NOTE: All registrants and faculty must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 to attend the 2022 Squire Summer Writing Workshops. We will follow or exceed all state and federal safety protocols in place at the time of the conference.


Support for these workshops is provided by the NC Arts Council, the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, and the family of Chick and Elizabeth Daniels Squire.
