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.

Women’s Writing Workshop: Better Book Trailers

April 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Think your only option for a book trailer is a PowerPoint presentation? That you need a big budget? Think again.

Creating a trailer for your book need not be expensive and can be easier than you think. Besides being a rewarding experience and another avenue to explore your creativity, a book trailer can be used to draw readers into your world before the first page is even read.

Khrys Vaughan, the creator of #StrongWomenWrite, will walk attendees through: making your title do double-duty, deciding what to make a trailer about, mining your book for overlooked marketing value, planning your trailer, what to do once it’s filmed, and resources and templates.

*This will be a working session.* Additional details at link. Advance registration only.
