First Peace Corps writers conference
Over the September 27th weekend, thirty plus RPCVs gathered in Enterprise, Oregon for the very first writers conference for Peace Corps writers. The conference was held at Fishtrap, a non-profit corporation devoted to writers in the west. Organized and directed by Rich Wandschneider (Turkey 196769), the weekend couldnt have been more enjoyable or helpful for writers. Featured RPCVs were Peter Chilson (Niger 198587), creative writing professor at Washington State University and a Fishtrap writer-in-residence in 2001, and Richard Wiley (Korea 196769), director of the creative writing program at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.
Thank you to attendees Tim Turner (Senegal 197780) and Donna Statler who have shared photos with us from the conference. In upcoming issues, we will publish essays read by RPCVs at Fishtrap. Plans are being made now to make this an annual event for Peace Corps writers.
