Zoom Details

Daily sessions (Friday welcome + reading, Saturday welcome + classes, Sunday critiques) will be held through one recurring meeting link. Our three genre classes take place in break out rooms, and we’ll practice on Friday to get comfortable with the tech. Sunday morning critique sessions will run in breakout rooms as well, and a schedule for critiques will be sent to those who signed up the week of the conference.
