Workshops

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.

Titles at Twilight – Edward Buckley “All the Way Home”

August 7 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

FREE

Titles @ Twilight promotes local authors, whose stories of history and the South represent a variety of perspectives. Titles is FREE to attend and takes place in the Community Room at the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park administrative building, 6110 Blue Stone Road.

Join us August 7th as we discuss ‘All the Way Home.” In this coming of age tale, two boys navigate their growing awareness of the Civil Rights Movement, racial inequality, and the meaning of love and family. They witness a searing out-of-control jury trial that alters their family, their reality, and their hearts forever. A Sandy Springs native, author Edward Buckley, uses his experiences growing up in the Mount Vernon Woods neighborhood to inform at least some of the events in All The Way Home. Son of famed Atlanta Civil Rights attorney Ferdinand Buckley, Edward remembers their dinner table as a virtual classroom on the Civil Rights Movement and in politics in general. With an education that most kids didn’t have, Edward later became a lawyer himself, practicing first with his father, before striking out on his own and starting a firm practicing law in the civil rights arena. This program is supported by Bookmiser New and Used Books, and funding for this program is provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, and the Sandy Springs Society.
