Opportunities for Vermont Writers
Submit your work to the 2018 BWW Anthology

As in the past, spots are limited and will be filled via lottery. The lottery sign up for all retreats will begin on May 15. Each retreat’s lottery will close 4 weeks before the respective event, giving us all plenty of time to plan and schedule.
Visit our retreats page to learn more about the schedules and leaders. And check back on May 15 to enter the lottery. Learn more about BWW retreats >
Become a reader for Mud Season Review
If you enjoy reading and discussing short works of fiction or nonfiction, we encourage you to think about joining the staff of Mud Season Review. We’re looking for readers in both fiction and nonfiction. As a reader, you’ll review pieces as they come into the journal and work with other journal readers and editors to select work for final publication. No prior experience or degrees required.
Join a BWW committee
In the spirit of “many hands make light work,” we’re forming committees to help carry out the mission of the BWW. Serving on a committee also means you get to share in the ownership of your community—and help make it even better for everyone.
From programming and marketing to membership and fundraising, we can use your talent and your time. We hope you’ll take a moment to take a look at our committee structure and let us know where you might be interested in helping.
Congrats and thanks
Congratulations to BWW founder Peter Biello on his 2 recent NHPR stories, one on the Portsmouth Poet Laureate Program celebrating 20 years as a nonprofit and the other on Dartmouth’s remembrance of Mario Puzo, author of The Godfather.
