Description: Tradition matters in a small town. It’s what makes the sun rise. Or your children grow. It lives in a place like veins in bedrock, its magnetism shaping spirits that awaken to its touch. The shores of Caspian Lake in Greensboro, Vermont hold the magic of such a tradition. A tradition of hard-working, passionate minds like John Gunther, Lewis Hill, and Wallace Stegner, writers who, in the words of Stegner himself, write to make sense of it all. The Greensboro Arts Alliance Residency’s new Writers' Forum seeks to give both established and burgeoning writers the opportunity to live and breathe that Greensboro tradition— to share in it, and to be shaped by it. Over a week in late August, fourteen established writers and teachers as well as a host of aspirants and students will gather together. Authors of prose and verse as well as members of the public will work together through collaborative events including workshops, colloquiua, and readings to examine the universal influence of tradition on the craft of writing, both within their own work, and the work of others. Nationally established Guest Writers who are already committed to participate include Emily Bernard, David Budbill, Tina Chen, Tom Greene, David Huddle, Liz Innes Brown, Gish Jen, Sydney Lea, Merrill Leffler, Krissie Ohlrogge, Bill Schubart, Lynn Stegner, Page Stegner, Baron Wormser, and Judith Jones, as well as program curator, Dr. Sara Dillon, Ph.D., Esq.
