Literary Events … In Like a Lamb
Spring is right around the corner, March 20 to be exact. And like all the flowers and greenery, literary events will be popping up everywhere.
I’ll be attending several, starting with the Dahlonega (Ga.) Literary Festival on March 12. I’m on a panel with regional writers discussing intense scenarios that Saturday. Joining me will be Mike Brown, Evan Guilford-Blake, Jim Henninger, J. Frank James, Ron Miller and Carol Williams.
I’m really looking forward to this event in the scenic north Georgia Mountains, only a couple of hours from Chattanooga and even less from the Atlanta area. Our panel discussion ought to be … intense.
So allow me to introduce you to my fellow panelists. Their full bios can be found at the festival’s website. Click here if you’d like to see the complete lineup.
Upcoming writing events: Also in March we have the First Friday Art Crawl (March 5); I’ll be attending the Southern Literary Festival at MTSU (March 24-26) thanks to the Nashville Meetups; and the Authors Circle has a booth at Mule Day in Columbia (March 31-April 3). I will update the column later with fellow authors attending the Mule Day signing event once we get everyone confirmed.
April will be an extremely busy month. Up first is a trip to the Outer Banks Retreat sponsored by the SE chapter of Mystery Writers of America, then I’m back home for the Nashville Film Festival screenwriters conference (April 20-22) and the Franklin Main Street Festival on April 23-24. The latter is always a fun event, sharing the Authors Circle booth with a dozen or so of my writing buddies. …
May kicks off with a literary event at Donelson Branch Library on the 7th from 10 a.m.-noon. I will be moderating a panel discussion with fellow authors Jaden Terrell, Iscah , John Neely Davis and Blake Fontenay. Admission is free and the public is invited. … I will close out the month by attending my first Indianapolis 500. While there, I will do a signing at Indy Reads Books on May 28 from noon-3 p.m. That will be a blast.
Screen scene: You are cordially invited (hint, hint) to watch the Nashville TV show when it returns from its winter hiatus on March 16. … The Tennessee Screenwriting Association meets each Wednesday at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film at 7 p.m. If you have a story to tell, please join us/
As always, thanks for reading.
