The Squire Summer Writing Workshops offer conferencegoers the chance to study elements of one genre with one instructor over the course of the program. Attendees will work on their own manuscripts, as well as those of their peers, while also attending readings, special presentations, and taking advantage of built-in writing time, amid the beauty and majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Instructors include former NC poet laureate Joseph Bathanti (poetry); Sheryl Monks, author of Monsters in Appalachia (fiction); and Eric G. Wilson, author of Against Happiness (creative nonfiction).

Pre-registration ends Wednesday, June 28.
