When catalogs are mailed out to our mailing list (pre-registrants will receive theirs first), catalog information will also be posted on our website. You can join our mailing list under the “About Us” section of our website, for next season.

With email communications, spam filters can sometimes make it difficult for successful communication, but we do our best to try to confirm that emails to pre-registrants and registrants have been received and read. Be sure to add “” to your email’s contact list/address book. If you do find an email from us in your spam folder, be sure to mark it “not spam”.

The 2022 Swannanoa Gathering will be held in-person, but with the addition of a number of safety protocols to promote a safe and healthy experience for all attendees. In accordance with Warren Wilson College’s safety guidelines, one of those safety measures will be the requirement that all attendees, instructors, and staff be able to provide documentation that they have been fully vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus, cross-checked and verified with a photo ID. By next summer, “fully-vaccinated” may include a booster. Protocol details will be shared as they develop and are subject to change before the beginning of the Swannanoa Gathering. The Swannanoa Gathering and Warren Wilson College are not responsible for impacts of any relevant travel restrictions, such as international flight purchases, as well as the impacts of any changes to policy and procedure for the 2022 Swannanoa Gathering and the registration process. Please see our Cancellation and Refund policy below.

Housing Note: On-campus housing is in student dormitories, with shared restrooms/showers.  While we try our best to accommodate medical conditions, there may not be enough relevant dorm rooms available to accommodate everyone. If you absolutely require certain housing accommodations, we recommend that you look into hotels, Airbnbs, etc. in the area.
