Writers from all over South Carolina are attending the Pawleys Island Writer’s Conference hosted by the South Carolina Writers’ Association (SCWA). Thanks, in part, to a $1,000 grant from South Carolina Humanities, writers will learn from some of the best authors and teachers in the industry. SCWA board President, Carol-Ann Rudy says, “We are very grateful to South Carolina Humanities for their invaluable help in making the South Carolina Writers Association 2018 Conference possible.”
SCWA Conference Chair, Amber Wheeler Bacon says, “The Pawleys Island Writers’ Conference is a chance for writers and storytellers in all stages of their writing lives to learn from masters in the field. If you are a writer wondering about point of view, dialogue, how to turn your obsession into a book, or how to get your book ready for publication, this conference is for you.” Attendees will participate in workshops with nationally recognized authors and editors, including, Therese Anne Fowler, Keynote: author of Z: a Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald and A Well-Behaved Woman; David Gates: Pulitzer Prize nominated novelist and short story writer; Gary Jackson: Cave Canem awarding winning poet; John Kessel: Nebula Award winning novelist and short story writer; Leigh Stein: novelist, memoirist, poet; Meg Reid: writer, editor, book designer, and Director of Hub City Press; and Jonathan Heinen: writer and Managing Editor of Crazyhorse.
