No one person can write the story of the South. There are, to quote one of Salvation South’s frequent contributors, Alabama novelist Charles McNair, “ten thousand Souths.” A true picture of the South only emerges as each writer contributes their own story to the narrative, each one like a square in a quilt.
So how can we, as writers, rise above historical stereotypes to tell new stories about the complicated place that is the South? How can each of us tell the story of our South?
This workshop will offer an overview of the pitfalls to avoid, and encourage writers toward refreshing ways to write their South. Join writer and educator Meredith McCarroll and Salvation South co-founder and editor-in-chief Chuck Reece in a workshop meant for writers interested in publishing in places like Salvation South to celebrate and complicate the Souths that we know and sometimes love.
