Highlands Writers Conference will be taking place online on Feb. 27. It’s free and open for everyone to enjoy. 

Visit hwc.highlands.edu to register for the event and receive a free HWC shirt by mail. 

“The HWC is unique in that it offers very close encounters with nationally recognized professional writers across a wide range of genres,” said Division Chair for School of Humanities Jessica Lindberg. 

“Attendees of the HWC speak highly of how down-to-earth our conference is — how casual and open it is to all levels of writers. We hope all attendees will feel encouraged to keep working on their dream projects and even start new ones after hanging out with our authors,” Lindberg said.

Writers to be featured at this year’s conference include Kelly DeLong, who is a Clark Atlanta University instructor, author of the novel “The Poor Sucker,” and the non-fiction book “The Freshman Year at an HBCU.” The event will also feature Brian Oliu and Jason McCall.

Anyone interested in joining should register early. There is no deadline for registration, but each workshop holds 20 participants at a time.
