Slide Show back to top Special Events back to top Appalachian Heritage Alliance AHA Writers' Workshop March 31st
Writers’ Workshop with Kentucky Author, George Ella Lyon
Saturday, March 31st, 2012
10am till 4pm
Wolfe County Women’s Club on Main Street in Campton
(next to the Wolfe County Historical Museum)
Cost is $50 – Lunch is included

You must register in advance so we know how many people we will be feeding. You may register by contacting Janine Musser through e-mail arts@mrtc.com or call (606)725-4860.

This writers’ workshop lead by George Ella Lyon on Saturday March 10 will be the first of four workshops in our “Women Writing with Women Writers” series funded in part by a grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women. These writers’ workshops are designed to provide the opportunity for women to unite with other wise women writers to inspire, encourage, and learn from each other. Scholarships are available.

These workshops will also lay the ground work to establish the “WomenWritersWeb.org” that will enable women writers to share their words and writings between workshops on an interactive web page. We are counting on the women who will be using this web site to provide the input, advice, and recommendations so that it reflects your needs as writers. Whether or not you can attend this workshop please e-mail me if you would like to be included in the discussions as we build the Women Writers’ Web and if you have suggestions for the web site.
