Highland Summer Writers' Conference

The Highland Summer Writers' Conference The Highland Summer Writers' Conference is undergoing major revisions. On Thursday, June 26, 2014, we will offer a writing workshop from 1 – 4 p.m. with author Jeff Mann, Associate Professor and Director of the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program at Virginia Tech. Later that evening at 7 p.m., Mann will give a reading in McConnell Library, which is free and open to the public. Individuals interested in signing up for the workshop should contact Ruth Derrick or Theresa Burriss. No course credit will be associated with the workshop this year. However, the HSC for summer 2015 will include two options for participants, who may either enroll for course credit or not. A different fee scale will correspond with the option students select.
