WELCOME TO THE REGIONAL WRITERS SECTION
The Review/Selection Process for selecting our 2020 Regional Writers is under way! The Dahlonega Literary Festival has two levels of authors: Featured Authors and Regional Writers.
Featured Authors are well known, published authors who are invited to attend our Festival. The DLF programs are designed around them.
Regional Writers are authors who are published with traditional publishers or self-published. They have perhaps written several books or perhaps just one. They are usually from the Southeastern United States, but we accept applications from authors who live anywhere. Regional Writers contact us, apply for selection, and submit a book for review. They must be selected by one of our Reviewers. Regional Writers may participate in Festival programming if selected by the Programming Committee to do so.
As we select our Regional Writers we will add their photos with their brief biographies below along with book covers and plot summaries of the books they submitted for review.
Though the Dahlonega Literary Festival will be held Friday and Saturday, March 6-7, 2020, the Regional Writer and Featured Author book sales will be held one day only on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 9:00am to 4:30pm. Book sales will be located in the Fellowship Hall on the bottom floor of The Dahlonega Baptist Church (234 Hawkins St., Dahlonega, GA 30533). Festival attendees are invited and encouraged to come visit the Regional Writers and FoxTale Book Shoppe during the Festival where they can peruse and purchase the interesting, informative, and entertaining books of our 2020 Regional Writers and Featured Authors and actually meet the authors! The Regional Writers will be at tables selling their books and FoxTale Book Shoppe will be handling the book sales for the Featured Authors.
Authors interested in applying to participate as a Regional Writer in the 2020 Festival should contact Mr. Ken Smoke at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Our goal is to fill our Regional Writer quota by November 30, 2019, so please don’t delay contacting Mr. Smoke.
The genres of books that are considered for selection in the Regional Writers section include the following: Fiction (mysteries, thrillers, fantasy, sci-fi, romance, historical fiction, regional fiction, etc), non-fiction (history, biographies, and memoirs), poetry, travel, the arts, cookbooks, juvenile fiction/non-fiction, and young adult fiction/non-fiction.
