My literary heroes include Eudora Welty, Flannery O'Connor, Carson McCullers, Erskine Caldwell, and some Faulkner. I devour everything: sci-fi, historical fiction, memoir, & biography.

Au programme

We will meet in a coffee shop and will discuss the concepts and the basics of traditional Southern writing, with emphasis on Southern Gothic. (Think "A Worn Path" and "A Good Man is Hard to Find.") We will cover character development, dialog, theme, and other aspects of the literary experience, especially in the Southern genre. Our goal will be to create our own short story, as well as cover art,…

Autres informations utiles

This is a two-hour experience, so we will be able to discuss a lot of traditional Southern history, tradition, and literature. But I think it would be fun for you to bring your own stories and experiences, and for us to write our own stand-alone story. I am not a boring English teacher. :-)

Ce qui est fourni

Fournitures créatives
I will provide pens and notebooks for my guests, as well as water and a light snack (chips, granola, pretzels, as an example). Also, I will include a free, signed copy of my award-winning "The Battlefield Guide to Life" book.

Le lieu

We will conduct our class on the steps of the War Memorial Plaza in downtown Nashville. We will walk across the street to view the Tennessee state capitol grounds, likely to the monuments to Sam Davis or Alvin C. York, and discuss particular Southern themes. In the event of poor weather we will need to meet in the hotel lobby of one of the guests, the downtown public library, or another alternative arrangement.
