Each year Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina invites a series of writers to the campus to speak. All of the events are open and free to the public. Having attended many of these over the past several years, I can attest to the high quality nature of these presentations. The speakers are usually award-winning authors in their genre and share many insightful thoughts and ideas on matters of current events. For those who love to hear from writers in their own words about their writing process make plans now to attend some of the events. Click on the link below to see a list of this year’s participants.
