Nimrod Fall 2021 Virtual Creative Writing Programming

For 42 years, Nimrod has hosted an in-person, all-day writing conference in conjunction with the publication of our fall issue.  This year’s in-person events have been cancelled owing to the pandemic, but a virtual creative writing program will be offered.

This year’s programming will feature several months of craft talks/writing workshops, Q&As, readings, and more.  More offerings will be added as they become available.
