From the Acting Director, Jennifer Brice

May 2019

Hello everyone!

We can hardly wait to welcome you all to the conference in just a few short weeks. If you’re enrolled in workshop, you should already have received a slew of manuscripts earlier this week from the assistant director, Alison Fromme, and some instructions from your workshop leader. (The exception is the jump-starter workshop with me—though instructions are coming!) Cody Tipton and his staff in Conference Services are busy finalizing housing assignments and shuttle reservations.

While our 2019 workshops are closed now, a few spots remain for retreaters. If you’re interested in spending a week in the scenic Chenango Valley, working on your own writing and taking in as many talks by writers, editors, and agents as you can, get in touch with us. Do it soon, though: the deadline looms.

Check back here in the coming days for a full conference schedule. We’ve got treats in store, including a Wednesday evening event in downtown Hamilton.

Any questions or concerns? Email us at or call me at (315) 228-7261.

All best wishes,

Jennifer Brice
Acting Director
