The Mountain Heritage Literary Festival
June 13-15, 2014



Dear Friends of the Mountain Heritage Literary Festival,

Please set aside the weekend of June 13-15, 2014, and plan to join us in Harrogate for the 9th Annual Mountain Heritage Literary Festival.  We are planning a great weekend, and I promise you will want to be here.

Novelist and noted short story writer George Singleton will serve as our 2014 keynote speaker.  We’re delighted to bring him to Lincoln Memorial University.  As always, our master classes will be led by a team of outstanding writers.  Have a look at our staff page as we continue to announce who will join us in 2014.

We will hold our third annual Cumberland Gap Writers Studio in collaboration with Table Rock Writers Workshop. Writers who, after three days of inspiring workshops, panels, and presentations want to stay and write all day and share their writing at night, have the opportunity to live in the LMU dorms, take advantage of the LMU facilities and landscape, and write and share from Sunday until Friday. Writers who attend both the festival and the studio will receive a discount. Come get inspired, then stay and continue to be creative!

We are working to put together a great Mountain Heritage Literary Festival schedule for this summer. As always, it will be a wonderful balance of good friends from years past and new voices of first time MHLF presenters.

We want you to be a part of all this!  Registration will open in January.  In the meantime, if you have any questions about our festival please feel free to contact either Denton Loving or me: denton.loving@LMUnet.edu | 423.869.6432; darnell.arnoult@LMUnet.edu | 615.715.3956.
