  Participants, at all stages of development, are invited to attend the Mountain Maryland Writers’ Conference (MMWI) being held July 26-29 in Garrett County, Maryland at Garrett College and the nearby venues of Swallow Falls State Park, the Friendsville Heritage Museum, the Grantsville Community Museum, the Spruce Artisan Village at Penn Alps, and the Cornucopia Cafe, also located at Penn Alps.

Morning and afternoon sessions guided by authors and historians will include workshops focusing on the processes involved in:
• writing poetry inspired by nature, inner and outer dreams
• creating travel destination guides
• conducting historical and ancestral research
• exploring topics for writing
• incorporating accurate historical settings into written work
• combining history, traditional and family stories to create new stories
• marketing and publishing work

Participants and presenters will have the opportunity to enjoy the unique beauty of these mountain settings as they interact in small workshops and mingle with presenters and group members during breaks and meals.

To further insure the quality of a small group setting, openings for the Mountain Maryland Writers’ Institute are limited to 30 members.
