Conference presenters will read selections of their work for an audience of conference participants.
Conference director Joyce Hinnefeld invites participants to present five-minute readings of their own work on Friday and Saturday nights, at the end of each day’s conference events. A sign-up sheet for these readings will be available at registration on Friday evening and Saturday morning.
The five-minute limit will be strictly enforced—so be sure to practice and time yourself in advance!
Throughout the weekend, conference attendees will have an opportunity to purchase work published by keynote speakers, workshop leaders, shop talk presenters and panelists, and roundtable participants. The Moravian College Bookstore will facilitate sales at the Friday evening reception, Saturday registration, Saturday keynote address and Sunday buffet lunch.
Included in the full-conference registration price are the Friday evening reception and Sunday lunch buffet; coffee, tea, and muffins or Danish will be available on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Participants will be able to purchase lunch on campus Saturday; a number of quick and inexpensive restaurants are also available within walking distance of the campus, and others are easily accessed by car. Dinner Saturday evening will be on your own; we recommend advance reservations at some of the more popular Main Street restaurants. A list of available restaurants is included here.
