WELCOME TO THE REGIONAL WRITERS  SECTION
  

The Review/Selection Process for selecting our 2021 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.

Authors interested in applying to participate as a Regional Writer in the 2021 Festival should contact Ms. Patricia Godsave at patricia.godsave@ung.edu for more information. 

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.
