I’ve decided to try and get active in the writing community. Finally. Yeah… I’m slightly slow. *chuckle* I’ve been looking at some events going on in the next few months and there are some exciting things I don’t want to miss.
I am also looking for some local camaraderie, maybe some writer’s groups, conferences and events. I joined the Atlanta Writer’s Club and the Georgia Writer’s Association. Through these groups, I’ve found a few things going on that I plan to (and am excited to) attend!
- March 30- Kathryn Stockett is speaking a Savannah College of Art and design. I own The Help in audiobook and eBook, but I WILL buy a print copy so I can have her sign it!
- May 20,21- Atlanta Writer’s Conference- There is an opportunity to have some work critiqued, to pitch a book (if I’d written one), to attend a panel discussion and a workshop. I intend to be at the workshop and mixer following, and then the panel discussion the next morning. My friend Kim jokes that I could have a manuscript ready for critique by the April 17th registration deadline… she has a point. But I haven’t even started writing anything, so..
- There are a number of workshops and conferences coming up. I’m excited to hear some authors speak and meet other writers.
