I'm so excited about the new Summer Writer Series -
A Southern State of Mind
If you love all things Southern Writers do best then ready those laptops, keyboards, pens and sketch pads for a world of southern inspiration headed your way.
What's the difference between Southern Writers and all the other writers of the world?
I get asked that question frequently. At conferences, on panels, on the radio, over coffee and in classrooms. My answer is what it's always been. Everyone knows how much I love ALL writers. And I champion writers from around the world. I love the way that writers from other countries and backgrounds can teach us truths that we would never understand otherwise. BUT on the Southern Question -
I once told a group of students -
It's like this. When I read a writer say from New York they are so smart that I can hear their brain ticking. That's what I'm thinking when I'm reading whatever wonderful thing they have created. They are so smart. So smart. But - when I read a Southern Writer I feel their heart beating. It's just that simple for me. There is something raw and primitive, earthy and eternal about their writing.
But what IS IT that makes Southern writers so . . . Southern? So incredible? Besides being born and bred here of course. I mean - what's in the water? The dirt? The DNA? And how can those of us who are southern draw deeply from that well within us? How can those of us from other parts unknown tap into those magical literary waters? Well, that's what we fixin' to find out.
It's why I'm so excited about focusing down on this Series teaching Southern Writing. Creative Non-fiction or fiction, short stories or essays, novel or screenplay - there is something essentially magic about Southern writing and that will be the inspiration and the focus.
