Attention all authors, writers, poets and readers! Luckily, that covers just about everyone reading this blog, so you’ll want to listen up.
The Mammoth Cave Writers Conference is coming up on Saturday, November 12 at the Mammoth Cave National Park Hotel.
The all day event will feature prominent writers in sessions on writing about Mammoth Cave. The formats of the conference’s work will vary from articles, poems, papers, articles, and books. Genres featured will include history, nonfiction, fiction, and poetry.
It’s a unique opportunity to learn about the history of Mammoth Cave firsthand. Who knows, maybe you’ll even come away with some inspiration of your own? The website says to be prepared to participate.
The Writers Conference is held in conjunction with Roots in the Cave, a conference focused on the families of the Mammoth Cave region and their history. The Roots theme this year is the historic Archibald Miller family. I wasn’t able to find much about them on the ol’ Interweb, but I’m sure they’re a fascinating bunch.
All in all, sounds like a great day of writing, history, and soaking up some Kentucky culture in one of the most beautiful places Kentucky has to offer. Maybe it’ll even prepare you for WKU’s own Undergraduate Conference on November 18th.
