Is that you? It might be you. If so, keep reading.
Though the workshop has taken place in Tennessee spots like Martin, Lebanon and Harrogate, this year, as it was in 2020, it'll be online.
Links and the like will be sent to participants who will join faculty and other young writers in real time on the internet.
The cost to attend this year's (online) workshop will be zero dollars.
Should you or someone you know like to join folks who give money to support this program, great! Donations can be sent here.
We'll be meeting via Zoom.
This'll require a computer with a steady-ish network connection.
If you do not have access to internet and/or a workable device please let us know and we'll see what we can do!
