Virtual North Words Writers Symposium
August 2 - August 4
In lieu of the usual North Words at the end of May (which was cancelled due to COVID-19), organizers have been able to put together a Virtual North Words, 3-hour daily sessions over the course of three days with our distinguished keynote author Bill Streever and faculty of Alaska/NW writers: Heather Lende, Caroline Van Hemert, M Jackson, Bryan Fierro, Nicole Stellon O’Donnell, and Eva Holland. This year’s special theme is “Writing at a time of a threatened natural world.” Join us for inspiring panels with our faculty, a writing workshop, and as much virtual fun times our Skagway organizers can provide. See schedule for details and register on our website for the entire event or individual days.
