THE CAROLINA MOUNTAIN LITERARY FESTIVAL – Burnsville, N C September 7 – 8

“The Carolina Mountains Literary Festival is the best literary festival you will find anywhere…Other festivals may try to copy it, but it requires more than a schedule of popular authors and a solid plan of action; it requires the love of a community with open arms.  And holding the festival in the magnificent mountains of Western North Carolina in September helps a little too.”  — Kevin Watson, Press53

Writing Workshops

You can now register (by clicking the image below) for our special 3-hour-long writing workshops.  These are different than our other sessions because
1) they last 3 hours (rather than the typical 45 min.)
2) they do carry a fee and a pre-registration requirement
3) you work on your own writing (rather than listening to authors read and talk about their own)

The vast majority of the sessions are free, open to the public and require no advanced registration.  (See the schedule here.) We simply want to make sure you make the most of the weekend and get registered for the special events you want to attend –in enough time. 

Registration for the Friday Evening Banquet with Michael Twitty and Saturday Kenote with Gail Godwin are also open.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
