GPWC on Hiatus

For a variety of reasons (most of them related to the ongoing budget crunch facing higher education in America, particularly in the arts and humanities) the Great Plains Writers’ Conference will be on hiatus for the 2017 session.

Normally this time of year we would begin telling you about all the wonderful things we have planned for March. But this year, that’s not the case.

If and when we are able to put on a conference in the future, we will announce it loud and clear on this site and in social media.

Thank you for your support of the GPWC in years past! We hope to be back on track for 2018.
