So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Fiction Writers, Take Note!

The North Carolina Writers' Network 2013 Squire Summer Writing Residency will be held July 11-14, 2013, on the campus of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee. If you've already registered, thank you! If not, consider signing up to experience the Network's smallest and most intensive conference of the year.

This year's weekend-long fiction workshop will be led by Elizabeth Lutyens. Scenes are the building blocks of a story or novel. Through dialogue, gesture, action/reaction, setting, and sensory detail, scenes give fiction the illusion of real life. For this workshop, excerpts from published fiction will model effective scene-work; in-class exercises based on scene will enhance skills and trigger inspiration. Your own writing will play an essential role. Using sample pages of your fiction, you will explore, within a supportive and constructive atmosphere, the most effective ways of honing existing scenes and creating new ones.

This is an opportunity for mountain writers who need and want special attention for that novel or short story collection. The Squire Summer Writing Residency is one of those events people talk about a long time after attending. If you write poetry, or non-fiction, see more at
