Do you know a high school student who is interested in creative writing? We’ve got perfect FREE events for that student!
Over five Saturday afternoons this fall, the Carson McCullers Center for Writers & Musicians presents Fall Creative Writing Workshops. These are all FREE for high school aged writers, RSVP not required, and snacks will be provided. These workshops, taught by area masters on each subject, are designed to help Georgia/Alabama high school students learn about different forms of writing and prepare a manuscript to submit to the Carson McCullers Literary Awards, which have NO submission fee. These awards come with cash prizes and will be presented at the Carson McCullers Literary Festival, headlined by U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, on February 21-22, 2020.
