Friday, July 13 - Sunday, July 15, 2012Hub City, SC — Campus of Wofford College — 12th annual Writing in Place conference Faculty Member

September 12 – 15, 2012 : In Ashe County, one community invites you to open a good book. In September, words find an audience in West Jefferson. The town’s literary festival, On the Same Page, brings together readers and writers for four days of writing inspiration, practice, and celebration. And this year — the festival’s fifth anniversary — may feel like a homecoming. Bibliophiles in West Jefferson are reading Lee Smith again. Her recent collection of short stories, Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-eyed Stranger, is this year’s community read. Other writers include children’s book author Libby Bagby, fiction writer Tim Gautreaux, and acclaimed newcomer A.J. Mayhew.
