Last night, #HFGather host Sarah Aronson talked with George Brown about 2021 community, programs, scholarships and more:
Introducing Alex Villasante, our new Online Program Manager!
We will hold monthly Gathers in 2021. Sarah: “We know how to make community even when we can’t be together.” George: “We discovered that we can build community online. We don’t need to be on campus to feel our community. This does work.”
Lots more online courses are on the way!
What makes some of the programs unique; learning your process by taking classes; and investing in yourself, whether you’ve been published or not.
In-person courses will return when they can be safely done, with flexibility about registrations, cancelling and rescheduling.
On-campus personal retreats will return in late spring–and you might find yourself in one of our “themed” cabins, like Jane Yolen’s or Floyd Cooper’s.
The scholarship program is the heart of the Highlights Foundation community: introducing our Special Scholarships for 2021.
A note from Sarah to all our friends who haven’t yet taken a course with us:
“If you want guidance in your writing or illustrating, that’s what you’ll get here. If you want a community, that’s what you’ll get. You will discover something about your story if you come to a class. I promise you!”
