Looking forward to the Writers Conference at the AJC Decatur Book Festival/August 30

Saturday, July 20, 2013

I'm looking forward to joining some really terrific teachers and writers for the upcoming Writers Conference at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. I'll be teaching memoir, but there are plenty of options that day.

I'm calling all Atlanta friends...

From the Decatur site (and more details here):
Keeping with tradition, the AJC Decatur Book Festival will hold its annual Writers Conference on Friday, August 30th at Agnes Scott College. A handful of stellar authors have been invited to kick off the festival, teach workshops, and share their special knowledge and skills with the public. This activity begins with a Writers Conference keynote address at 2:30pm, spilling into workshops from 4pm until 6pm.

The keynote address will be given by Clyde Edgerton. He is the author of ten novels, a book of advice, a memoir, and numerous short stories and essays. Edgerton has been a Guggenheim Fellow, and five of his novels have been New York Times Notable Books. He will be discussing writing and his new book Papadaddy’s Book For New Fathers: Advice to Dads of All Ages.

Edgerton will deliver his keynote speech from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Refreshments and book sales follow. Individual writer workshops take place at Buttrick Hall beginning at 4:00 p.m. Get your ticket now at http://ajcdbfwriterskeynote.eventbrite.com.

Take a look at our workshop descriptions below and follow the EventBrite links to sign up! All workshops are free and open to the public, with limited space.
