UTC Offers Meacham Workshop

For more infor see

We would like to once again invite you to the Meacham Writers' Workshop, which will be held October 27-29, 2011, on the campuses of UTC and Chattanooga State, and at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre. The full schedule and bios of the visiting writers are available on the Meacham web site. Just select Schedule.
Also, for those of you unfamiliar with the campuses or the Chattanooga area, there are links to maps on the schedule to help you find locations. Some events have not yet had rooms assigned. This information will be added to the schedule as it becomes available.
If you would like to submit poetry or prose for review, the deadline is October 7th. All of the information regarding submissions is availabe from the Submissions page on the Meacham web site, where you can submit your files electronically, which is our preference. When you submit, you will be asked your preference for either a group workshop seminar or an individual conference. Because of the limited time available to the visiting writers, we will not be able to offer the option of selecting both, as we did in the spring.
When you submit, the system is set up to send you an automatic response indicating your mss. has been received. Unfortunately, many e-mail services tend to block this message as spam. If you do not receive the auto-response and cannot find it in your spam folder, feel free to contact the Meacham webmaster to verify your mss. was received. For your convenience, there is a web form that you can use to contact the webmaster on the Meacham web site. Just click on Contact the Webmaster.
There will also be two open workshops during the Meacham, one on publishing and one on song writing. Participants do not need to register for these events.
Since you are receiving this message, you are already on the Meacham mailing list, so, if you submit a manuscript, answer NO to that question, or you may receive duplicate announcements from us.
Thank you for your interest in the Meacham Writers' Workshop, and we hope to see you in October.
