Founders of Convergence
What is this: In 2000, three friends decided life intruded on writing too much and they would take a weekend and converge on the cheapest hotel central to them and write write write. This year will be the 7th year of this Convergence.
How much does it cost: The price of the weekend includes transportation, 1/4 of a cheap hotel room for two nights and contribution to the “running to the supermarket” fund. Usually about $50 a person by the end of the weekend.
How did you determine location and time: Past participants and friends were polled to come up with the weekend. Location is central to participants. This year there will be groups of people coming from around Charlotte, NC, Rochester, NY, Albany, NY and Vermont, and Baltimore, MD (and wherever you are). Guess what place was Halfway between all those. HALFWAY, MARYLAND.
Are you all insane: Yes. Clearly. All writers of any style or genre are welcome to this space.
