Although the long-lasting winter may have made it seem spring would never come, it does now seem to have arrived — and summer, and the Clockhouse Writers’ Conference & Retreat, are not far behind!  Registration remains open until May 15, so please do visit the CWC website for registration materials if you’re thinking of joining us.

The conference occurs during the MFAW-VT residency and includes solitary time for writing; works-in-progress sessions to critique each other’s work; workshops run by you, our creative participants; evening readings and common-room gatherings; and the unveiling of the new issue of Clockhouse, our alumni-run, national literary journal.  We also join the MFAW program for the presentation and Q&A of their visiting professional and for the reading of the Visiting Writer (details to follow in future blogs).
