Well, we just couldn't wait any longer to share with you our faculty lineup for the 2012 Taos Conference: yes, that's how excited we are about it.
We need a few more weeks to get you the full bios and course descriptions (keep your eyes peeled), but for now, here's what we've got lined up:
Teaching weeklong workshops in Fiction: Laura Brodie, Alice Elliott Dark, Robert Boswell and Eric Puchner.
Carolyn Meyer will be teaching a weeklong class in Young Adult Fiction; Hilda Raz and Amy Beeder will both teach weeklong workshops in Poetry.
Sarah Sentilles and Justin St. Germain will be teaching weeklong classes in Memoir, and Mark Sundeen will be doing a Travel Memoir class.
In addition, Ruth Ozeki will lead a weeklong workshop in Meditation and Writing, called "Retraining the Writer's Mind," and Priscilla Long will be reprising her infamous Prose Style class, "The Art of the Sentence, the Art of the Paragraph."
We'll also have six master classes available: John Dufresne, Antonya Nelson, and Summer Wood in the Novel, Rob Wilder and Greg Martin in Memoir, and Joy Harjo will be teaching a master class in Poetry!
We've also got great stuff lined up for weekend workshops: Emily Rapp will be doing a Memoir class; Carole DeSanti will be doing Fiction, and Daniel Mueller will be doing Flash Fiction/Prose Poetry. There will also be a Poetry class with Valerie Martinez, Children's Picture Books with Ana Baca, Screenwriting with Michael Amundsen, and Publishing with Emily Forland and Wendy Weil.
