Sewanee Writers

Sewanee Writers' Conference Attendees

Much of what we do as writers we do alone, to the tick of our home clocks, guided by writers with whom we mostly keep company on the page. But all of that changes in an instant on the Mountain. At Sewanee, you are in the presence of distinct lyric voices and true storytellers. During readings, I loved glancing down the rows. The alert expressions distilled for me the essence of Sewanee: a readiness to be delighted, surprised, and engaged. – Catherine Staples
