Southern Women Writers Conference

Event Details

  • The Southern Women Writers Conference at Berry College seeks to recognize the contributions of southern women to American literature. Scholarly and creative presentations and panel discussions as well as readings and lectures by contemporary authors provide a forum for examining the unique perspectives and concerns of southern women writers of the past and present. This will be the final Southern Women Writers Conference at Berry College, and keeping with this milestone, and with the knowledge that all conclusions constitute new inceptions, our theme for the 2012 conference is “Beginnings and Endings.” Speakers and presenters will explore the concepts of both literal and metaphorical “beginnings” and “endings” in a variety of ways.

    The conference also seeks to promote and encourage promising new southern women writers by sponsoring creative writing workshops and an emerging writers contest in poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. The first-place winners in each category of the contest will read from their work during the conference.
