Explorations of New and Old Ideas



ASHEVILLE—More than two-hundred writers, editors, and literary agents will gather in Asheville November 18-20 for the North Carolina Writers’ Network’s annual Fall Conference.

The NCWN Fall Conference, first held in 1985, has grown into one of the nation’s largest and most inclusive writers’ conferences.

The 2011 Fall Conference will feature more than twenty-five workshops and panel discussions on all aspects of the craft and business of writing, including self-sustaining prompts, stage presence for writers, “Mystery 101,” “Brave New Media,” and Master Classes in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction.

NCWN is, without a doubt, the most influential and effective professional organization in the southeast for writers. I urge anyone who can make it to attend the meeting this fall. Membership is also invaluable, so take a look at their site (www.ncwriters.org) and consider the benefits.

Hinge Literary Center

There is a  new resource for North Carolina writers, especially those in the Triangle:  the Hinge Literary Center.
