2012 Auburn Writers Conference
It’s been said that there are only two kinds of stories after all—the journey and the homecoming. One implies a roving spirit. The other? A soul that longs for a familiar landscape. Either way, the writer is a wanderer on the page and in the imagination. The Winding Road: Travel, Identity and the Search for Voice invites writers and readers who hear the beckoning call of discovery and of new cultures, as well as those who believe that perhaps the greatest voyage is an exploration of the places we call home, to join us this October 12 and 13, 2012, in Auburn, Alabama, for a writers conference like no other. Let your writing journey of a thousand miles begin with us.
The Auburn Writers Conference offers instruction, practice, perspective, and community for both established and emerging writers. For information about workshops and visit authors, please visit the website.
