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 14th annual Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference possible and such a tremendous success. More than 140 writers, students, teachers, literary enthusiasts and readers from Homer as well as throughout Alaska and the lower 48 spent four days together within a context of shared experiences of workshops, informal conversations, discussions, craft talks, open mics and readings. Participants left with a renewed appreciation and passion for the written word, new friends, new resources and incredible inspiration.
This highly acclaimed, educational and cultural experience could not have been possible without the assistance and significant contributions from many including: Advance Printing, Alaska Airlines, Alaska Coastal Marine, Alaska Professional Communicators, Alaska State Council on the Arts, KBC Caroline M. Coons Fund, Barbara Baugh, Bay Excursions, Homer Council on the Arts, Lucy Cutting, Ravn Air, Maury and Agnes Coyle, Alaska Women’s Network, First National Bank Alaska, Friends of the Homer Public Library, Jana Hayenga, Homer News, Mary Hughes, KBBI, Gary Klopfer, Land’s End Resort, Peter and Jo Michalski, Cathryn Rasmuson, Save-U-More, Peggy Shumaker/Joe Usibelli, The Homer Bookstore, Two Sisters Bakery, Tutka Bay Lodge, Fran Ulmer, University of Alaska Alaska Promise Fund, University of Alaska Anchorage’s Chancellor office and University Relations, Usibelli Foundation and many other individual donors. Thank you all.
See you next year — June 10-14
