Events

For nine months of the year, the Georgia Writers Association hosts 2-hour writers workshops that focus on some aspect of the writing life: craft, finding an agent, publishing, marketing, and so much more. Past invited authors have included Anjali Enjeti, Sumita Chakraborty, Kerry Neville, and others. Our workshops are held at Elevator Factory, 437 Memorial Dr. SE, A-2, Atlanta, GA 30312.

Other annual events include the Georgia Author of the Year Awards (GAYA) and the Red Clay Writers Conference. GAYA is an annual award that honors authors published in the previous calendar year. The awards cover thirteen categories in both fiction and nonfiction genres. Each year, one winner and one finalist are selected from each category and announced at the GAYA banquet and ceremony. Additionally, the Red Clay Writers Conference is an all-day event that is comprised of multiple workshops that cover topics such as writing, marketing, and publishing.

If you would like for your literary event to appear on the calendar, please fill out the form here. All submissions are subject to review and approval.

Around the World with Six Poets (six-week Zoom class)

October 14 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$199

ZOOM CLASS ON WORLD POETRY STARTS OCTOBER 7, 2020

A six-week Zoom class, Around the World with Six Poets, starts on October 7. For more info or to register: https://catamaranliteraryreader.com/worldpoetrywithzackrogow

“These are some of my favorite writers, all of them modern poets whose work is highly accessible and moving. These poets not only changed literature, they transformed the way we see the world.”—Zack Rogow, instructor

The six writers represent very different but connected regions of the globe:
Yosano Akiko (Japan)
Anna Akhmatova (Russia)
Federico García Lorca (Spain)
Pablo Neruda (Chile)
Léopold Sédar Senghor (Senegal)
Nazim Hikmet (Turkey)

The class includes slides about the poet’s life, placing the writers in the context of the dynamic historical and literary changes they were part of. We also hear brief excerpts of the poetry in the original languages, to give a flavor of the poet’s actual speech. Each class will include optional writing prompts for creative inspiration.
