GREENVILLE, NC—The deadline to register for the North Carolina Writers' Network 2015 Squire Summer Writing Residency has been extended to 5:00 pm on Friday, July 10. All registrations must be received and paid in full at that time.
Poetry workshop leader Amber Flora Thomas will be featured on The State of Things with Frank Stasio on Thursday, July 9, during the noon hour. The State of Things, produced by 91.5 WUNC, brings "the issues, personalities, and places of North Carolina" all across the state, from the mountains to the sea.
The Squire Summer Writing Residency offers ten workshop sessions over four days, allowing participants to work in-depth on their own writing, as well as their colleagues’, while also studying the principles of the genre with their instructor. Other features include faculty readings, panel discussions, and open mic sessions for attendees.
"In three and half days we shared the equivalent of a week of class time," said NCWN member and 2014 attendee Bo Bowden. "The camaraderie built was unique to this NCWN event—for me, it’s where the ‘network’ came to life!"
The NCWN 2015 Squire Summer Writing Residency runs July 23-26 at East Carolina University in Greenville. Registration is open through July 10. Don’t delay: register now!
