Other Words

Event Details

  • The Eighth Annual Other Words Conference, held again this year at Flagler College in the nation’s oldest city of St. Augustine, will include panels, readings, workshops, and Florida’s largest independent literary book fair. Papers and panel proposals on the conference theme of “WANDERLUST: Writing and Travel” are now being accepted. Panels on topics other than the main theme will also be considered.

    Gold Medal Florida Book Award winner for poetry Stephen Kampa will lead the opening celebration reading Thursday evening.

    We are going to have a group reading (loosely referred to as a Renga or Alternating Accretive Verse) Friday night. Everyone who wants to can read. The theme is WANDERLUST: Writing and Travel. The theme will make the group form for the reading work. Each piece will last no longer than a minute.

    Other Words conference readings will conclude Saturday night with two of Florida’s best and most widely travelled prose writers, Kelle Groom and Bob Schacochis.

    Concluding the conference are the new Advanced Breakthrough Workshops in Poetry, Fiction and Creative Nonfiction. The four-hour sessions offer writers in-depth work with Other Words core faculty members Terry Witek, Mark Powell, and Ira Sukrungruang.
