Each year there are two signs of springs reluctant arrival here in North Dakota [Quarterly] Land: flood warning along the various rivers in the area and the UND Writers Conference. The latter is decidedly more positive than the former.
The UND Writers Conference is an annual gather of national (and international) and local readers and writers to discuss the art and work for writing. Each year has a particular theme, and this year, it’s “Communities and the Individual.” As always, the conference features an all-star cast: Hanif Abdurraquib, Jessica Bruder, Kellijo Ford, Kaitlyn Greenidge, Cal Lane, and Sarah Vogel.
As with the past writers conferences in the COVID Era, this one will be both in person and online. To see the schedule of events which start on Thursday (and I highly recommend the lunch time panels!), click here.
