The Georgia Writers Association is pleased to announce Lifetime Achievement Award winner for 2011, Mr. Terry Kay, as the Red Clay Writers Conference keynote speaker. A 2009 recipient of the Governor's Award in the Humanities and a 2006 inductee into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame, Terry Kay has been a sports writer and film/theater reviewer (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), a public relations executive, and a corporate officer. He is the author of twelve published works of adult fiction,including the recently released collection of short stories, “The Greats of Cuttercane.”
“The Greats of Cuttercane,” which he received another Georgia Author of the Year Award in 2011, is a collection of stories about characters from a small north Georgia town known as Cuttercane and all having some association with a mystical body of water called Asa’s Spring. “I’ve always believed Southern literature could be character driven or caricature driven,” Kay explained. “In ‘Cuttercane,’ I deliberately chose to do it as caricature. For me, it was an interesting exercise in style and great fun in discovering the people.” His other works include Bogmeadow's Wish, The Book of Marie, To Dance with the White Dog, The Valley of Light, Taking Lottie Home, The Kidnapping of Aaron Greene,Shadow Song, The Runaway,Dark Thirty, After Eli and The Year the Lights Came On, as well as a book of essays (Special K) and a children's book (To Whom the Angel Spoke).
