Southern Women Writers Conference

I’m headed to the Southern Women Writers Conference at Berry College.  Lots of great speakers: Isabel Wilkerson (author of Warmth of Other Suns, my favorite history ever), rocker and writer Marshall Chapman, poet Stacey Lynn Brown (love Cradle Song), A Dry Grass in August’s Anna Jean Mayhew and so many more...

Excited to attend a creative nonfiction workshop with Melissa Delbridge (just finished Family Bible last night). Dorothy Allison knocked my socks off twice earlier this summer at the Tin House Writer’s Workshop---can't wait to hear her keynote address.

On Friday morning, poet Caroline Young, a fellow Athenian, creative nonfiction writer Joy Wilson-Young and I will be reading in a symposium called Recovering from Endings and Troubled Histories.  I’ll be reading from Delta Drive, a story set in Greenwood, MS, my hometown.
