Tinker Mountain Writers' Workshops Summer ResidentialSunday, June 11 – Thursday, June 15, 2023Location: Hollins campusA HOME FOR WRITERS OF ALL LEVELS. Fuel your passion and transform your writing during your one-week experience of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the beautiful campus of Hollins University*. Join us in one of our intimate and inspiring manuscript or write-now workshops in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, or multi-genre. Our manuscript workshops allow you to share work with colleagues and your faculty mentor in advance and receive supportive and critical feedback during the week. If you don’t have a manuscript, or you’re looking to start new work, a write-now workshop is the perfect choice. This allows you to write each day and join fellow writers for both in-class writing exercises and sharing of work written during Tinker Mountain. Whether taking part in a manuscript or write-now workshop, you can participate in craft talks, readings, and social sessions. You’ll have plenty of interaction with faculty, including a one-on-one session with your faculty mentor, and have the opportunity to network with other writers for ideas and support. June 11-15, 2023. For cost and more information, email email@example.com. www.hollins.edu/tmww

Women Working with Clay SymposiumMonday, June 12 – Wednesday, June 14, 2023Hollins campus
Founded in 2011, this symposium was created to honor the great accomplishments of women ceramic artists today. The objective of the symposium is to create an environment that is full of ideas, images, demonstrations, artwork, and discussions. It is intended as a place for learning and inspiration. It is a place for everyone to share stories of struggles and successes. It is a place to see where we stand in the present, to better understand our past, and to support each other in our future. The symposium includes lectures, small group discussions, demonstrations, and slideshows. Demonstrations include altering thrown pots, hand building sculptural vessels, as well as some decorative, glaze and finishing techniques. Attendees interact closely with the presenters and lecturers throughout the week, share images of their own work, and participate in a small object exchange, in order to promote a sense of sharing and communication.
