The North Carolina Writers’ Network is proud to present its first-ever entirely online Cabin Fever Conference, April 16-18, 2020. This event offers 630 minutes of high-quality, socially-distant instruction in the craft and business of writing. Register here.
Attendees may sign up for the full conference (7 classes); half conference (4 classes); or quarter conference (2 classes)—or even just one single class. The weekend will conclude with an Open Mic reading for conference registrants and readings by conference faculty.
a Scene: Emotional Building Blocks of Fiction with Quinn Dalton
Public Speaking for Writers with Cameron Kent

Classes will take place online using Zoom. Participants may attend the classes using a laptop or mobile device, from anywhere they happen to find an internet connection.
Attendees can even attend using just a telephone!
Instructions for accessing the conference classes will be sent to registrants no less than twenty-four hours prior to the start of the conference. The class will be archived and made available to registrants for repeated viewings.
Also during the conference, “exhibitors” will offer special pricing on select titles through our Virtual Exhibit Hall. These exhibitors represent NC-based publishers and literary organizations that rely on handselling their products in-person at physical events. Attendees are encouraged to spend time over the weekend poking around the exhibitor sites and purchasing a few things to read during this time of quarantine.
“No pandemic can disrupt the Network’s mission, or its importance: to connect, promote, educate, and serve the writers of this state, and beyond; and to nourish our remarkable literary tradition and community,” said NCWN Executive Director Ed Southern. “This Cabin Fever Conference is just a different way of doing what we’ve always done—bring writers together for excellence, opportunity, and community.”
