There are a few hours left for you to register as an “early bird” and get a discount on the admission fees for the annual RPCV conference — this year celebrating the 55th Anniversary of the founding of the Peace Corps in Washington from September 21st to September 25th. There are also discounts for “seniors” and recently returned PCVs. Go to the registration page to get the details and sign up.
We shall be there
Peace Corps Worldwide/Peace Corps Writers will —
1 – be part of the “Stories of Peace” program the afternoon of Wednesday, the 21st.
“RPCVs have some of the most compelling and inspiring stories. Sign up for this series of workshops to learn how to find, craft and share your story. You will participate in a workshop on “Spoken Word Storytelling,” a workshop led by John Coyne of Peace Corps Writers, and a panel discussion featuring published RPCV authors led by Marian Haley Beil, co-founder of Peace Corps Writers. Come share your Peace Corps stories and learn how other RPCV have successfully published their memoirs, novels, and poetry. (Please note: registration is free for this event but space is limited. Please only register if you are sure you can attend.)”
[At this moment, this particular program is listed as “Full,” but the NPCA has said that they will make arrangements to add space if there is a demand.]
2 – sponsor a table at the “market” where authors who have published with the Peace Corps Writers imprint and other self-published writers will be able to sell their books.
3 – present its annual book awards.
See you in DC!
