    ESWA is on Summer Break from July 30th-September 8th so the board can focus on their own writing and plan the 2022 BTO Writers Conference.  We sincerely hope you've enjoyed this past year-and-a-half of amazing writing events, and hope you take this time to review your notes, and focus on your writing as well!

    We'll be back for Thursdays with ESWA with a dynamic poetry workshop featuring professor, author, editor, and poet, Kevin Prufer, live on Zoom September 9th from 7:30-9 PM!

    And you won't believe what we have coming up this fall...!
