CALL FOR AUTHORS

Writers in the Mountains (WIM) invites authors residing in, working in, or otherwise connected to the Catskills and Hudson Valley regions to a literary arts and community event and celebration we call Writers Unbound (formerly known as Meet the Authors), the fourth in our series of annual literary festivals. This year the event takes place Sunday, April 30, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Union Grove Distillery in Arkville, NY. Union Grove is housed in a big old barnlike building featuring comfortable spaces fitted with stainless steel and copper and wood, a roaring fireplace, and the percolation of fine spirits-all making for a perfect environment in which to listen to, talk about, and think about books and writing.

Building upon the past three years' success of our literary fair and fare, regional authors and other authors who have a connection to the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley are once again invited to join us. Come to sell your books, promote your work, and network with fellow writers and publishing professionals. This year's keynote speaker is Holly George-Warren, a music writer, historian, and biographer who has written many articles and liner notes, edited compilations and collections, and is author or co-author of and more than fifteen books, including her forthcoming biography of Janis Joplin, which will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2018.

This year's Writers Unbound program includes a Poetry Reading with Featured Poet Sharon Israel and others; a Publishing Panel with writer-editor Sari Botton and publisher Dayl Wise from Post Traumatic Press; an Illustrators' Moment with illustrators Durga Yael Bernhard and Will Lytle, and cookbook editor Carrie Bradley Neves; and New Release of the Year with nature writer Leslie T. Sharpe.

Participating authors will receive additional exposure and visibility for their works through the marketing materials (space ads, calendar listings, posters and flyers) and media appearances (Facebook, Twitter, Watershed Post, WIOX Roxbury, and others) associated with this event. A light breakfast will be served for participants the day of the event. The fee to join us is $35.
