Update on the Status of Writing in Place 2020

June 1st 2020

After conversing with our faculty and staff and reviewing attendee feedback, we cannot, in good conscience, hold our annual Writing in Place conference this year. The Hub City Writers Project believes protecting public health is of the utmost importance, and while we know this is disappointing news, we’re confident that we’re making the best decision for everyone involved. On a brighter note, we’re happy to share that our 2020 faculty have agreed to return for next year’s conference. If you’ve already registered for this year’s conference and are interested in rolling your registration over to Writing in Place 2021, please contact our Outreach Manager, Leslie Sainz, at: leslie@hubcity.org. Those who do not wish to roll over their registration will receive a full refund.

Writing in Place is all about community and camaraderie, which is why we’ve made the decision not to adapt the conference to a virtual format. Instead, we’re pleased to introduce new 2-hour online summer workshops throughout the month of July. If you’re interested in acquiring valuable workshop experience and receiving personalized feedback from award-winning authors, these craft-focused intensives are just the thing to jumpstart your latest writing project. Workshops will be available in poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, with an additional session centering around publishing and acquiring an agent. To reserve a spot in these limited workshops, please email leslie@hubcity.org, and look out for more information about these intensives in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you at our new virtual programs!
