Napa Valley Writer's Conference - 2009

The Napa Valley Writers Conference
is up and running, holey-moley, lickety-split. Once again, a fabulous faculty:

Fiction: Robert Boswell, Antonya Nelson, Peter Ho Davies and ZZ Packer.
Poetry: Elizabeth Alexander, Carl Dennis, Jane Hirshfeld, and David St John.

The application process is structured a bit differently this year, with rolling admissions, beginning March 1st. One advantage: the earlier you apply, the more likely you'll get your first choice. Plus quicker response from us. Another difference: those who have been accepted previously to the conference at least two times won't have to submit a qualifying manuscript; obviously we already know your work! Those applicants (fiction, that is) can then get cracking on their workshop manuscripts.


  1. Hey Lake,
    Another must read. The Book of Salt, by Monique Truong.
    Story of GertrudeStein and Alice B. Toklas' cook "Bin".
    Mah vel ous.
    Miss you!

  2. Moll...I'll definitely look for that. Right now I'm reading The Vagrants by Yiyun'd pretty fabulous, if rather tough.
    miss you too!
