A NOTE TO GEORGIA MOUNTAIN AND WESTERN N C WRITERS

(a note from Scott Owen)


Hi, All, 
I'm very excited to be coming back up to the mountains to participate in Writers' Night Out on June 14 and lead a workshop at The Writers' Circle on June 15.  I hope you'll be able to join me for both events.

I'll be reading at Writers' Night Out at Brother's Willow Ranch Restaurant in Young Harris on June 14 at 7:00.  I'll have my new Selected Poems CD and copies of all of my books, including the newest, Shadows Trail Them Home from Clemson University Press; For One Who Knows How to Own Land from FutureCycle Press; and Something Knows the Moment (a Next Generation-Indie Lit Book Award finalist) from Main Street Rag available for purchase and signing.

Then, on Saturday morning (June 15), from 10 to 1, I'll lead a workshop called "The Essential Practices of Writing" which will focus on four habits all writers need to foster.  The workshop will include invention strategies and revision, but I will discuss any aspect of writing that participants are interested in.  If you'll be at the workshop, email me a question or topic ahead of time, and I'll be sure to cover it.  You're also welcome to email me a poem for possible use in discussing approaches to revision. This is my third workshop with The Writers' Circle, and every time I have discovered new poets I like as well as poems I want to include in Wild Goose Poetry Review, so I'm looking forward to seeing what discoveries I can make this time.

Register for this class by sending a check for $40.00 to Writers Circle, 581 Chatuge Lane, Hayesville, NC 28904
Please spread the news about these two events by forwarding this email to anyone you know who might or should be interested or by posting information about it on any social network you participate in.

Thanks,

Scott Owens

Thank you, Nancy, for posting about Scott's visit to the mountains. We always enjoy his classes at Writers Circle.
I hope everyone will come out to hear him read at WNO at Brothers Restaurant in Young Harris, GA.
