Me! Writer in Residence!



From The Pat Conroy Literary Center:


 Congratulations to Kaye Wilkinson Barley, the newly selected recipient of our Pat Conroy Literary Center's Fall 2023 Writer's Residency! We look forward to welcoming Kaye to our beloved Beaufort for her week at the MarshSong cottage, overlapping with our 8th annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival. 


Many thanks to all of the talented writers who applied, representing 20 states, and special thanks to our generous local benefactor who makes possible our residency program. 


Kaye Wilkinson Barley lives with her husband, Don, and their corgi, Annabelle, in the mountains of North Carolina. Kaye is a voracious reader and lover of books, a long-time blogger, an amateur photographer, a dabbler in mixed media collages, and a fiddler of fiber arts. She is the author of the novel Whimsey (for which she plans to write a sequel), and she is also a contributing writer to the Western North Carolina regional anthologies Clothes Lines and Women’s Spaces, Women’s Places.


Y'all.  Life is really, really good.

I'm so pleased for you, and proud of you! Enjoy every minute. It's not a dream - maybe just a dream come true.
