Fayetteville Public Library to celebrate Ozark Writers Live | Community Notes

Courtesy: FPL Press

Ozark Writers Live is the Fayetteville Public Library’s fifth annual celebration of Ozark writing and culture.

This full-day event on Saturday, Sept. 10, is presented in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and provides regional authors a chance to promote their work and to discuss their craft. Writing workshops during the event offer budding new talent the chance to learn new techniques and to gain inspiration from our featured speakers. Noontime music and a quilter’s showcase will round out the event.

Sessions are scheduled for 45 minutes, providing authors the chance to speak about how the region has influenced their work and to read selections to the audience, as well as sharing tips to new writers in the area. Books are available to purchase the day of the event.

Admission is free and open to the public. More information about OWL is available at ozarkwriterslive2011.wordpress.com or by calling 479-856-7250.
