Writers, sharpen those pens!
The 2nd annual Short Story America Festival and Conference will take place from September 26-29th in historic Beaufort, South Carolina. Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th offer all-day events, including an opening reception at the Lewis Reeve Sams House, an 1852 Historic Register home overlooking the Beaufort waterfront.
More than a dozen authors from across the country will participate in workshops, lectures, readings and book signings, including Ann Serling, author of the memoir As I Knew Him: My Dad, Rod Serling, Eric Witchey, James Goertel, Marjorie Brody, Mathieu Cailler, Katherine Tandy Brown, Richard Hawley and Gary Lawrence. All are masters of their craft and eager to share the joys and techniques of writing. The eight workshops offered touch on subjects such as dramatic dialogue, expressing emotions, jump-starting a story, and writing from the heart while working the industry angles. No matter your genre, you can connect with other writers, expand your craft, and celebrate the art of writing.
A $50 all-events pass allows access to all four days' worth of events, including catered receptions on Friday and Saturday evenings. To register and view the entire SSA Festival schedule, visit shortstoryamerica.com and click on Festival. Questions? Please call Tim Johnston at 843-597-3220.
