Upcoming Events


2015 Southeastern Writers Workshop

The SWA Board of Directors met July 13 to begin planning the 2015 SWA Writers Workshop, our 40th. Yes, 40 years! The Workshop dates are June 19-23, 2015, with the fiction mini-workshop running June 20-21 and the nonfiction mini-workshop on June 22-23. We are currently contacting potential faculty members, but we hope to have an agent as always, an editor (or maybe two!), a novelist, a journalist, a poet, a YA author, a columnist, a short storyist and a memoir author. I hope we can squeeze them all in! For more information see their website at http://southeasternwriters.org/Writers_Workshop.html

Springmingle '15

Springmingle '15 will take place on March 13-15, 2015 in Decatur, GA, in its brand new Decatur Library venue, where attendees can enjoy the sites, shops, and restaurants of Decatur throughout the conference weekend. We have a fantastic line up this year for writers and illustrators of all levels. Every session, every speaker, every moment is designed to help writers and illustrators improve their work. Meet editors and agents from industry-leading agencies and publishing houses—and the friendliest, most supportive colleagues one could ever hope to find. Visit their website for a complete listing of workshops: Springmingle '15.
