There's no better gift for a writer friend (or for yourself!) this holiday season than a registration to the 2011 Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference, hosted by The Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing (the home of HFR). Spend four inspiring days with some of the nation's finest writers and teachers of poetry, fiction and nonfiction (Tony Hoagland, Andrea Barrett, David Shields, C. Dale Young and many more!).

Register between now and January 1 and receive a special gift from us: a free copy of Word of Mouth: Conversations with Visiting Writers on Their Craft, our brand new 220-page book of insight and advice.

The conference will take place March 3-6 on the Arizona State University Tempe campus. Discounts are available for Piper Friends, ASU faculty, staff and students, ASU MFA alumni and Arizona teachers.
