Next Month's Meeting


September 2, 2015

Speaker



Gay Hammond

Gay H. Hammond lives and writes in Gainesville, Georgia, where she has been the Artistic Director of WonderQuest, a theatre for young audiences since 1993. In the theatre for over 30 years, Gay continues to be a working actor, director and playwright, as well as a professional theatre educator currently teaching at Brenau University. She received her MFA in Playwriting from Spalding University, her MA in Theatre from University of Louisville, and her BA in both Theatre and English from Brenau College. Underlying all of Gay’s work is the fervent belief that there is no more valuable treasure than that of feeling the connection between ideas and emotions. She hopes that her plays will always inspire that connection.

Atlanta Writers Conference

On Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7, 2015, the Atlanta Writers Club will present its next Atlanta Writers Conference (http://www.cvent.com/d/krq283). The goal of this conference is to give you access to ten top publishing editors and literary agents–never any repeats from previous conferences–and to educate you with a workshop and talks by experienced authors. The editors and agents will respond to your pitch; critique the manuscript sample, query, and synopsis, or nonfiction book proposal, you submit in advance; critique your query letter during a Friday practice session so you can improve your work for Saturday; and educate you about the current environment of the publishing industry and the changing roles of editors, agents, and their clients.
