Highlands Writers Fair

Posted April 8th, 2019 in Uncategorized

We’re excited about our new event. We’ve partnered with the Virginia Highlands Festival to create the Highlands Writers Fair. It’s held at the main library April 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We have a fabulous group of writers coming to the library. They’ll be at tables throughout the library selling and signing their books.

We’re also hosting several workshops about writing and publishing your creations.

You’ll also get the chance to hear the winning entries from the Virginia Highlands Festival’s Book Evolution contest. Last year the VHF sponsored a contest where area youth wrote, illustrated and produced a book. The VHC chose three winners and printed the books. Amanda Bailey will read the winning stories and present the finished books to the winners.

Writers include:

Joy Behymer, Robert TR Bradford, Elizabeth Champagne, Hazel Fleming, Victoria Fletcher, Deborah Gold, Sharon Griffith, Bekah Harris, Leanne Hinkle (Leanne Tyler), Linda Hoagland, Rose Klix, Gayle Leeson, Damean Mathews, Alex McGlothlin, Rita Quillen, JC Schweingrouber, Stephen Semones, Kathy Shearer, Daniel Swanson, Charles Vess and Wendy Welch.

Workshops include:

The Writers Fair offers a series of free workshops on publishing for both aspiring and seasoned writers.

Linda Hoagland helps writers polish their craft with an interactive workshop.

A panel of local publishers discuss the options to bring a book to print and how to start that journey.

Internationally renowned illustrator Charles Vess discusses his book illustration career.
