KY Women Writers Conference 2013

The historic Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning in downtown Lexington was host to the 35th annual Kentucky Women Writers Conference. Writing workshops, craft talks, and panel discussions took place there on September 20-21, 2013. Featured presenters in this album include poet and essayist Paisley Rekdal, playwright Kia Corthron, novelist Jennifer Haigh, memoirist Claire Dederer, and poet Kiki Petrosino. At the Writers Reception, registrants, presenters, and patrons gathered in the Lexmark Public Room on the University of Kentucky campus, fortifying themselves with appetizers and wine before Bonnie Jo Campbell’s keynote. “Jennifer Haigh, it’s your fault for persuading me to have that second glass of wine,” is how Bonnie later began her remarks.
