>The wonderful Sewanee Writers’ Conference kicks into gear today (check in and opening ceremonies were yesterday), and I’m not there. I wish I were. As always, it’s a great lineup of faculty and guests, and I’ve got a number of friends attending as participants, scholars, and fellows. I’ll be on the lookout for folks who are blogging from the conference, and will post links here. (If you’re blogging the conference and happen to see this post, leave comment and a link here, please!)
The main sessions of the conference are held on campus at the Women’s Center, and usually there is a display of art for the duration of the conference. This year’s featured work is IndiaWorld by Preston Merchant.
>Not a blog from this year, but a post this year inspired by last year (from Donna Trussel via 32Poems): Things to Take to a Writers' Conference.
>My friend Kymberly Keaton went to Sewanee this year, and I interviewed her about her experiences there. She gave me a good inside look at what it's like, plus some good tips for those who want to apply and attend.
