#HFGather: Community, Craft & Career

Dec 18, 2020 | Community Good News, HFGather, The Business of Publishing

We had a wonderful time at our last 2020 #HFGather, hosted by Sarah Aronson, Chris Tebbetts, Erin Dionne, Leah Henderson and Mitali Perkins. They covered a lot of ground, talking about community, craft and career. Some talking points:

  • Finding silver linings in pandemic time
  • Trying to get comfortable with being uncomfortable
  • Learning to write what makes you happy
  • Honoring the act of writin g by prioritizing it
  • Doing the best you can with the tools you have right this second
  • Taking time, and investing in yourself as a creator
  • When to share a new story with others
  • And so much more!

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
