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.

Dignity in Dream Identities: Seven Strategies to Excavate Truth and Authenticity, and to Fulfill Our Aspirations

January 17 @ 5:00 pm


DIGNITY in Dream Identities
Seven strategies to excavate truth and authenticity, and to fulfill our aspirations

Many of us look at the New Year as a time to start again—to reconnect with ourselves, our aspirations, and our dreams. This year, perhaps, more so than ever. With so much having changed, and a seemingly never-ending sense of uncertainty, we find ourselves yearning for the stability and strength of self—for self-assurance, groundedness, and authenticity.

In this workshop-style virtual event, Dr. Beth-Sarah Wright will draw from the insights in her latest book, DIGNITY: Seven Strategies for Creating Authentic Community, to help us explore our own barriers to authenticity, how to excavate our own truths, and create lasting and sustainable change. This is an invitation to embark on the difficult yet hopeful work of authentic living.

The term dream-identity is what Dr. Wright refers to as the identity that drives the purpose of our work towards authenticity. It is our aspiration, what we strive towards and what we hope to become our lived identity.

Bring your notebook or journal and a pen, your openness and bravery, prepared to dig a little deeper this year, as we work together to manifest our most authentic selves as we strive to achieve our aspirational and dream identities
