The 16th Annual Blue Ridge Writers' Conference will be held April 5 and 6, 2013, in Blue Ridge, Ga., at The Art Center. The mission of the conference is to educate, inform and inspire writers. Writers will learn to hone their skills and expand their markets.
The 2013 Keynote Speaker is Vicki Lane, author of "The Day of Small Things" and of the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries, which include "Signs in the Blood," "Art's Blood," "Old Wounds," "Anthony-Nominated In a Dark Season," and "Under the Skin." She also teaches in UNC-Asheville's Great Smokies Writing Program. Vicki draws her inspiration from rural western North Carolina, where she and her family have tended a mountainside farm since 1975.
C. Hope Clark, Scott Owens, Louise McKinney, Diane Hamilton, Jamie Dodson and Wanda Vaughn also are featured speakers at the conference.
