WE DID IT!!!  NY LITERARY AGENT PANEL & PITCH-SLAM 2018

“I was so impressed with the events organized by the Flatiron Writers Room in Asheville. It was my favorite conference I’ve ever participated in…” 
— Allison Hunter, Agent, Janklow & Nesbit Associates

“The Flatiron Writers Room is a fabulous organization that seems to be truly devoted to educating and nurturing its authors…”
— Michelle Brower, Agent, Aevitas Creative Management

 

And thank you to the 42 writers who pitched, the 80+ attendees of the panel, and the generous volunteers and donors who helped make it all happen. This was our biggest and, by all accounts, best event ever; we could never have pulled it off without EVERYONE’S help.

We’re already planning the 2019 AGENT PANEL & PITCH-SLAM and would love to have your valuable feedback – so if you haven’t filled out your survey yet, please do.

Thanks again to one and all – we hope to see you soon at another FWR event!!!

We host Flatiron Writers workshops and events; in addition, our space is available for rent to writers who want to teach, host a book launch, or hold a writers’ group or book club meeting.Our goal: to nurture a vibrant and supportive writing community–inspired by Asheville’s rich literary history–while providing writers with quiet, affordable space in which to write, and classrooms in which to teach or participate in classes and workshops.

Located at 5 Covington Street in West Asheville’s vibrant Haywood Road corridor, the Flatiron Writers Room provides space for writers to learn, teach, read, celebrate and, of course, WRITE.

The Flatiron Writers Room is an outgrowth of the Flatiron Writers, who have been writing and providing workshops and events for the western North Carolina writing community since 1993.

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.
