AWP 2014 & Volume 19 CFS & other tidbits

AWP 2014

Windhover will have a table at AWP Seattle (February 26-March 1).  We’re at location O24, so stop by, say “hi,” pick up an issue, and get some Windhover “swag.”  We’d sure like to meet you!

Volume 18

Windhover 18 was recently released, and it’s jam packed with artistic goodness (featuring 36 writers and artists).  You may order copies by sending a check (payable to Windhover) for the appropriate amount to our mailing address (on the Windhover homepage).

Volume 19

Submissions for Volume 19 opened as of February 1 and will remain open until August 1.  (Review our call for submissions on the Windhover homepage.  Our online submissions manager can be found there as well.)

Down the line:

  • Windhover will also be at the Festival of Faith and Writing (April 10-12) in Grand Rapids, MI.
  • We’re in the planning stages for next year’s Windhover Writers’ Festival.  (We’ve already confirmed one featured presenter, TBA, and will make an announcement, including dates, when the full roster is set.)
  • Late Spring we’ll be posting a CFP for next year’s Windhover Writers’ Festival (February 2015)

Late-October Update

This month’s post will take the form of a list since I’m in thick of working on both the next of Windhover and planning for the festival.

  • Online registration for the 2014 Windhover Writer’s Festival (February 5-7, 2014) is now up and running.  The process should only take a few minutes, so make sure that you register sooner rather than later.  When registering, you will be asked to rank your preferences for workshops to attend.
  • In response to feedback from previous attendees, we have also added a closing lunch on the last day of the festival, February 7.  The cost is $10, and you can pay at the festival.
  • We’re making the final selections for pieces to be included in the 2014 issue of Windhover, which will be released on the opening night of the festival.  The issue will be chock-full of quality poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, as well as visual art (in full color), and several book reviews.
  • If you haven’t already done so, consider submitting some work to read at the conference.  We’ll be considering proposals through November 15.  Here’s a link to the CFP.
  • In the coming weeks, I’ll be updating the schedule as we solidify more events.  We hope to see you at the festival in February!

Grace & Peace,
