TWO EXCEPTIONAL WRITERS CHOSEN FOR
NORTH COAST WRITERS’ RESIDENCIES
Two writers, Deborah Williams and Sarah Buckmaster, have been selected to participate in the second annual North Coast Writer’s Residency, which was developed collaboratively by the Astoria Writer’s Guild and Astoria Visual Arts. The residency program offers both established and emerging writers a unique opportunity to launch new endeavors, revise works in progress, or conclude longstanding projects. The program seeks to provide writers with writing time and space in an idyllic setting: the Spotted Goat Cottage on the Long Beach Peninsula, which features panoramic views of Willapa Bay, Long Island, and the Willapa Hills.
Both writers will give public readings at the AVA Center for the Arts during their respective residencies, the dates of which are still in flux due to COVID-19.
