Two of our mentors, Bill Brown and Jeff Hardin, along with former student Tiana Clark, will be part of Scarritt-Bennett’s Poet’s Corner.
Bill Brown: “I have the feature poem for the May issue of Nashville Arts Magazine announcing my May 22 reading at Scaritt-Bennett’s Poet’s Corner. My new book, Elemental, is due out in September. I lead late summer and fall workshops at Orr Mountain Winery and Chattanooga Writers Guild. I’ll be the keynote speaker for the Christopher Newport University Writers Conference in Newport News VA. Feb, 2015.”
Linda Busby Parker: Linda’s busy schedule–
May 20, 2014 Guest speaker for the Medical Society of Mobile County. Program title: “Creative Imaging: Fact to Fiction.”
June 8, 2014 Speaker at Springhill Presbyterian Church in a series of twelve programs titled “An Ever Rolling Stream: Expressions of Faith through the Ages.” My topic is “Spiritual Writing: Connecting Past, Present, and Future.” Other speakers include the Poet Laureate of Alabama, a couple of art historians, musicians, and specialists on religious architecture. This should be fun! Nothing like stretching your wings—right?
May 28-June 23 I will be teaching a “special topics” course at the University of South Alabama titled “Plots and Storylines: Narrative Structure.” This course will be taught on the accelerated semester—a whole semester taught in slightly less than a month! Double sessions five days a week—it’s a sprint, not a marathon. I’ll run fast for four weeks!
Have a review of Roy Hoffman’s novel, Come Landfall in the next issue of 2nd and Church—this issue should be out soon. Mentoring in The Loft this summer. Looking forward to that! Meanwhile, continuing to read and write.
