    Early Bird Registration for the 2022 August Poetry Postcard Festival ends June 4, and registration for the event ends completely on July 4, so do not delay!

    Celebrating 15 years, this event invites writers to sign up to be placed in a group. Once each group reaches 32 registrants, each receives a list of names and addresses. The goal is to write a poem a day on a postcard to the next person on the list after your own name and mail it to them. In return, you will receive a poem from each participant in your group. Writers are encouraged to start in advance of August 1 to allow time for the postcards to arrive, but it’s common to have some days go by with no card arriving and others with several cards waiting in the mailbox.

  • Event :: The Writer’s Hotel 2022 Virtual Summer Fiction Workshop

    It’s back! The Writer’s Hotel (TWH) is hosting another virtual summer fiction workshop August 6 through August 28. The program centers on four weekend writing workshops and lectures, plus two full manuscript readings by TWH Editors, one-on-one agent pitching sessions, and attendee readings.

    The deadline to apply is July 1, 2022 or until filled. This event is capped at 28 students. There is a $30 application fee.

    Instead of an intense immersion programming, this year’s virtual event is operating on a new approach that allows them to take time and get to know one another and the TWH Directors. They will take time and give each writer even more attention than ever before.

    During the Summer Workshop, writers will practice pitching manuscripts to TWH Editors Scott Wolven and Shanna McNair to hone their skills for a virtual Agent Pitching Session.

    View the full schedule here. Apply today so you don’t miss out on the opportunity to hone your fiction even further.
