Join us in Swannanoa on June 28 for the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the MFA Program For Writers at Warren Wilson College! The day-long celebration includes panels with faculty and alumni, a celebration of Larry Levis, a silent auction with items donated by faculty, and an evening gala with dinner and dancing!

Below, a sampling of three fantastic auction items! If you’re attending the gala, you can bid in-person. Not able to make it this year? Consider buying in advance at the fixed Swannanoa Superstar price by June 27 and the item is yours (Swannanoa Superstar prices released on June 13: check back!).
