Corban to host Portals Writers Conference
February 23, 2012
Anyone interested in learning better writing techniques, discovering new genres or navigating publishing options should plan to attend the Portals Writers Conference June 21–24.
Conference sessions will be taught by many of the best writers in their fields including: Jane Kirkpatrick, author of Where Lilacs Still Bloom and An Absence So Great; slam poet Phil Long; Adam Gallardo, author of many graphic novels including Gear School and several Star Wars spinoffs; and Diane Glancy, author of The Dream of a Broken Field and Stories of the Driven World.
“While the act of writing seems a lonely and solitary one, the irony is that writers thrive in an atmosphere of mutual encouragement,” said Gina Ochsner, Corban’s writer-in-residence. “These workshops are designed to provide an atmosphere where ideas can collide, are challenged and are refined.”
The conference will be held at Corban University and is designed for writers in high school to professional writers. On campus lodging is available and encouraged.
