Many contribute to success of 12th writers’ conference

The Kachemak Bay Campus of Kenai Peninsula College would like to extend its sincerest appreciation and gratitude to the following individuals, agencies and businesses whose generous grants, donations and in-kind support made the 12th (!) annual Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference possible and such a tremendous success. I also greatly appreciated all the support from so many in Homer. Writers, students, teachers, literary enthusiasts and readers came from throughout Alaska and the Lower 48.

This highly acclaimed, award-winning educational and cultural experience could not have been possible without the assistance and significant contributions from many, including: Advance Printing, ACF’s Elizabeth Carroll Fund, Alaska Airlines, Alaska Coastal Marine, Alaska Humanities Forum, Alaska Professional Communicators, Alaska State Council on the Arts, Alice’s Champagne Palace, Eleanor Andrews, KBC Caroline M. Coons Fund, Barbara Baugh, Bay Excursions, Homer Council on the Arts, Lucy Cutting, dwell press, Era Alaska, Maury and Agnes Coyle, Alaska Women’s Network, First National Bank Alaska, Friends of the Homer Library, Homer News, Homer Veterinary Clinic, Mary Hughes, Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge, Land’s End Resort, Peninsula Clarion, Peter and Jo Michalski, Save-U-More, Peggy Shumaker/Joe Usibelli, The Homer Bookstore, Two Sisters Bakery, Fran Ulmer, University of Alaska BP/Conoco Fund, University of Alaska Anchorage’s Chancellor office and University Relations, UAA’s CWLA department and the Usibelli Foundation. Thank you all.

See you next year — June 13-17.
