Description

Now in its sixth consecutive year, Writers Weekend features award-winning authors and teachers who discuss elements of craft and share their original creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. This unique opportunity enables educators, readers, and writers from a variety of backgrounds to connect, collaborate, and create.

Writers Weekend 2018 will take place Thursday, February 8th – Saturday, February 10th on Augusta University’s Health Sciences and Summerville campuses. This year's keynote speaker is NYT bestselling author Rebecca Skloot (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks). Featured presenters include actress Karyn Parsons, and writers George Ella Lyon, Tony Grooms, Sean Hill, Ashley M. Jones, and more. For details: literaryaugusta.com.

This year’s conference honors the late Dr. Marya DuBose Free. A Professor of English and an Associate Chair of the former Department of Languages, Literature, and Communications at Augusta University, she was a champion for children's literature.

Writers Weekend 2018 is free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged.

The Book Tavern will have copies of the presenters' books available for purchase throughout the weekend.
