FWR writer (and often behind-the-scenes editor) Celeste Ng has been invited to attend the “oldest writing conference in America,” the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, this August as a Scholar. She’s promised to send us dispatches from the beautiful Green Mountains. Two other FWR contributors, Steven Wingate and Preeta Samarasan, were both Bread Loaf Fellows in 2008, and Steven was awarded the Bread Loaf-sponsored Bakeless Literary Prize in Fiction for stories from his debut collection, Wifeshopping.
(Steven even talked a little about the conference in an essay for FWR last month.) Here are links to more about this year’s conference and the history behind Bread Loaf. Celeste, we look forward to hearing about your experience!
And hey, Boston-based writers: Celeste is also teaching two writing seminars at Grub Street this summer; her course descriptions aren’t up on the site yet, but they’re coming soon.
