UPDATE: We’ve made the difficult and disappointing decision that our Summer Words writers conference and literary festival will not take place in Aspen this June.
However, the good news is the conference will occur in some capacity–whether virtually this summer or as a smaller conference in Aspen in the fall, or perhaps a combo of both. We’re hard at work planning what it all will look like and will be in touch in the coming weeks with more information.
