Annual Conference Canceled

QUIP has announced that the 2020 Annual Conference at Quaker Hill Conference Center has been canceled. We are following the CDC recommendations to keep our members and the wider community safer from the COVID-19 virus.

Our treasurer will be sending out full refunds for participants who have already registered.

We are working with the speakers and panel members to reschedule their planned talks via Zoom. These will be open to the public and at no cost to the attenders. We envision hosting one speaker a month. The schedule and access instructions will be posted soon.

The meeting for business which is part of the QUIP Annual Conference will be held on April 25 at 11:00 am New York time via Zoom. Access instructions and agenda will be sent out in early April.

The Annual Conference has been a chance for Quaker authors and publishers to showcase their recent publications. We encourage everyone to post information about their books to the QUIP website by emailing Eric Muhr at ericmuhr@gmail.com and on the QUIP Facebook page.


European QUIP

We will be at the Britain Yearly Meeting Gathering in Bath from 1-7 August 2020, where we shall be offering a special interest meeting on Thursday 6 August, 11:00 - 12:00 as follows:

Come and build community by listening to other Friends’ creative writing and (if you wish) sharing your own work. Those who wish to read should tell us when they arrive at the session. We will list you in order of arrival, and enjoy as many contributions as there is time for. Contributions should not take more than four minutes to introduce and read.

We shall also have a presence at the Groups Fair, at which members will be able to advertise their recent publications.

1900 Letter About Diversity Among Friends Read at 2012 Annual Meeting

Charles Martin, Co-Clerk, welcomed Friends by reading a quote from a letter written to the Friends Intelligencer by his great-great grandfather William Burgess which illustrated that Friends from differing theological viewpoints can get along and worship together and also work together for peace and social justice. He pointed out that QUIP is a contemporary example of what William Burgess reported to Eastern Friends was happening in San Francisco in 1900. Here's the letter: William Burgess Letter
