For writers of all stripes and experience levels, it's one of the most inspirational weekends of the year. And much of it is made possible by the generosity of sponsors, such as:

  • Welcome reception on Friday, sponsored by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County.
  • Friday evening book-signing and reception, sponsored by Salt magazine.
  • Saturday morning "Brilliant at Breakfast" panel discussion, sponsored by Ecotone/Lookout Books.
  • Saturday luncheon Veterans Writing Collective reading, sponsored by Al Manning, a member of the NCWN Board of Trustees.
  • Saturday faculty readings, sponsored by Bellamy Mansion.
  • Sunday morning "Brilliant at Breakfast" panel discussion, sponsored by WHQR 91.3 FM Public Radio.8

While the weekend will be full of workshops, panels, readings, and more, attendees have another reason to visit the coast this fall: to experience a bit of Hollywood history. Interested in touring some of the "Hollywood" locations in Wilmington?
