Mark your calendars! 

The organizers of the 2022 Summer Virtual Goddard/Warren Wilson Alumni Conference (“Wally Camp”) are happy to announce that the conference date has been set! Clear your calendars for Wednesday, July 13 through Sunday, July 17. 

As with the last three conferences, it will be hosted via Zoom. We’re sorry that we can’t meet in person this year, but the vagaries of the pandemic continue to make that unworkable. 

On May 3 we will send out a registration form, and you will have between then and June 5 to submit it. In the meantime, work up your manuscripts; dream up your classes, caucuses, and bookshops; and get ready to rally with Wallies! 

If you’re new or have forgotten how a Virtual Wally Conference operates, see the Wally Camp website at to get an idea of what it was like last year. (The 2021 website will be taken down in April.)

We can’t wait to see you!

Your happy conference organizers,
