Starting this Wednesday (3/30), Warren Wilson MFA Program faculty, alums and current students will be participating in more than 30 readings, panels and craft lectures at the 2016 AWP Conference & Bookfair in Los Angeles!
Programming will include a WWC MFA Program 40th Anniverary Reading on Friday (4/1) featuring program director Debra Allbery, faculty members Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Charles Baxter, A. Van Jordan, and many more! Continuing a tradition started by the program at Malaprop’s Bookstore in Asheville, NC—The Fastest Reading in the World—our readers will be joined by other Warren Wilson MFA faculty and alumni in attendance to celebrate four decades of literary achievement.
Also not to be missed: on Thursday, a panel titled “Ellen Bryant Voigt as Poet, Mentor, and Community Builder” will explicate and pay homage to Voigt’s gifts and achievements as poet, teacher, and visionary.
