As many of you writers already know, the Taos Summer Writers’ Conference was held in – you guessed it – Taos, New Mexico, for 17 years. Sharon Oard Warner and Eva Lupton-Ormond did an amazing job of coordinating accomplished writers/speakers, independent book stores, learned instructors and those of us who were fortunate enough to attend.
And as you also may already know, the conference is moving. In 2016, the conference will be held in Santa Fe, NM. Santa Fe is a colorful, fun town with lots to do and see. Even the governement office buildings of the capital city are adobe in style and boast charm and color. I love visiting Santa Fe.
And after five wonderful, creativity-sparking years of hearing speakers like Wally Lamb, Natasha Trethaway and N. Scott Momaday and studying with Annie Dawid, Antonya Nelson, Robert Boswell and Minrose Gwinn, I’d love to attend again. But I’m just not sure. I might but I might not attend “The Conference Formerly Known as Taos Summer Writers’ Conference.” We’ll see.
