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
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.
