Dairy Hollow Chinwags

The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) launched a new series of video interviews and readings called “Dairy Hollow Chinwags.” WCDH Executive Director, Michelle Hannon, explains, “Its purpose is to feature fellowship winners and scholarship recipients and to showcase the talented emerging writers who benefit from WCDH residencies. COVID is still a serious concern, and this gives us a way to share the work of our emerging writers in a safe way. Each chinwag (British slang for a chat) includes a short interview and a reading by the featured writer.”
