The second annual Auburn Writers Conference is fast approaching--don't miss it!
This year’s theme, “Myth, Memory, and the Haunted Muse,” considers the ways that writers use the idea of "the haunted" in their work—either literally or figuratively, as in the memories, histories, people, and places that haunt, and hence propel, characters.
The 2011 conference will feature three New York Times bestselling authors: keynote speaker Joshilyn Jackson (Gods in Alabama, Backseat Saints), Arts and Humanities Distinguished Speaker Mark Kurlansky (What?, Edible Stories, The World Without Fish), and Rachel Hawkins (Hex Hall, Demonglass).
Other visiting authors include young adult novelists Roger Reid (Longleaf, Space) and Victoria Schwab (The Near Witch), fiction writer Evelina Galang (Her Wild American Self, One Tribe), essayist Patricia Foster (All the Lost Girls: Confessions of a Southern Daughter), Richard Goodman, founder of the New York Writers Workshop (A New York Memoir, Soul of Creative Writing), Jeanie Thompson, director of the Alabama Writers’ Forum and acclaimed poet, and Wendy Reed, television and radio producer, and author of An Accidental Memoir: How I Killed Someone and Other Stories.
