DO Go Back to Rockville

When R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills wrote “(Don’t Go Back to) Rockville” as a plea to his then girlfriend Ingrid Schoor, he must not have know about the F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Conference.

Had he know about the event, which takes place at Montgomery College this month, he certainly would have written something like “(DO go back to) Rockville” or perhaps “Let’s Go Back to Rockville (Together).”

The F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Conference is set for October 13, 2007.

This year, the conference honors William Kennedy for Outstanding Achievement in American Literature. Past winners of this honor have included John Updike, Joyce Carol Oates, E. L. Doctorow, Norman Mailer, Ernest J. Gaines, Edward Albee, and Pat Conroy.

The F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Conference offers a full day of workshops, discussions, panels, and salons for writers. This year's workshop leaders include Susan Coll (fiction), Alix Ohlin (short story), Carly Sachs (poetry), Donna Andrews (mystery) and Margaret Blair (young adult) — to name only a few.

The Conference takes place October 13, 2007, from 8:45 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and is held at Montgomery College's Theatre Arts Center in Rockville, Maryland. The cost is $85 with discounts available for students and seniors.
