You are receiving this bulletin because you have been a recent presenter at WWC. Thank you for your support. When Words Collide is a unique type of festival where everyone–organizers and presenters–volunteer their time and talents to bring readers and writers together in a celebratory weekend. Without you, there would be no festival.
8 Weeks and Counting
The festival is sneaking up on us. Time to work on finalizing the schedule. Thank you to everyone who provided program updates and for volunteering to present. At this time we have a number of panels that could use additional presenters (marked as ? in the presenter list of applicable sessions). Our affiliates are reaching out to their members, but some if not all affiliates are willing to include presenters outside their members. If you see a ? in a panel's presenter list and are knowledgeable and willing to join the panel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward your email to the appropriate affiliate.
