POETS OF WNC - DON'T MISS THIS CHANCE TO STUDY WITH CATHY SMITH BOWERS

There are still spaces available for the poetry workshop with Cathy Smith Bowers at the Network's Squire Summer Writing Residency, July 24-26, at Warren Wilson College.
Cathy
has been described as "an inspiration and model for her students. Cathy is on fire with love for the written word and she fires up her students as well. Her students love and admire her; they flock to her creative writing classes."
Her work has appeared in publications such as the Atlantic Monthly, the Gettysburg Review, the Georgia Review, Poetry, the Southern Review, and the Kenyon Review. She served for many years as poet-in-residence at Queens University of Charlotte, where she received the 2002 J. B. Fuqua Distinguished Educator Award.

She now teaches in the Queens low-residency MFA in Creative Writing Program, and at conferences throughout the United States.


The Squire Summer Writing Residency offers:
Affordable three-day session includes daily classes, free writing periods, evening readings & discussions, and group meals
Commuter rates for those who do not wish to stay on campus
Limited number of dedicated writers in each workshop
In-class exercises and "hands on" discussion of work

The registration deadline is July 8th. Please visit our website to get more information and to register online. We hope you can join us for a weekend of poetry and community in the cool mountain air.

NCWN's new website looks great, but Netwest part is lacking

The North Carolina Writers' Network website, ncwriters.org has been sorely lacking for a long time. Almost a year ago, when I took the position of Program Coordinator for Netwest, I told Cynthia Barnett, then Exe. Director, how I felt about the antiquated website. She told me it would take much money to update the site and the Board knew the site needed to be updated. Nicki Leone surprised me with being the geek who created the new site. I am not sure, but I imagine NCWN saved a good bit of cash with Nicki, the president, doing all the work.
I want to apologize to our members of Netwest. Our part of the site did not get much of a makeover, I'm afraid. I did not know until Saturday afternoon that the site was to go live on Monday. Although I practically re-wrote every page of the Netwest link, Nicki didn't have time to change it before the "grand Opening" today. I hope to add photographs and correct some errors in the next few weeks.
I would love for our members to email me with ideas of how to make the Netwest link more interesting and more valuable.
I hope the members of Netwest will use the NCWN site now and not complain that the site has nothing for them. Any member can benefit from the new site. Check out all the possibilities. Let me hear from you, OK?
