The Nora Roberts Writing Institute (NRWI) at Hagerstown Community College was recently renamed the Mid-Atlantic Fiction Writers Institute.

Held every summer on the campus of HCC, NRWI's first two years featured fantastic weekend writing retreats with sessions taught by bestselling authors and college faculty.

Although NRWI was initially geared towards beginning and aspiring fiction writers, the institute has now grown to include programming for writers at various stages of their careers, touching on beginning, intermediate, and advanced subject matter.
