My Thursday post is a throwback to last year’s Dahlonega Literary Festival. I’ve gone the last couple of years and attended the workshops and panels.
Last year, I was lucky enough to share some fantastic Mexican food with one of my fave authors whose just so happens to be from an area nearby me, Delilah S. Dawson. She’s smart, witty, and an overall fun gal that writes YA and Steampunk. Read her Steampunk “Blud” series. And then we can talk about Criminy. 😜
I was also introduced to Molly Harper who writes a fun series that’s a clever twist on vampires. It’s a paranormal romantic comedy of sorts. Just read it. It’s laugh out loud fun.
If you are in the Dahlonega area March 12-13 this year, I highly recommend checking it out. A list of the authors featured this year and more info on the festival itself can be found at Dahlonega Literary Festival.
Best of all: THE FESTIVAL IS FREE Y’ALL!!
Dahlonega is a fun kind of artsy, college town. There’s a beautiful square with shops to browse and a variety of restaurants to suit any palate. There’s even a winery nearby if that’s your thing as well as the mountains. Make a weekend of it. Check out more here at Dahlonega, Georgia.
And no, I’m not a paid endorser. I just went to the college there and simply adore the little town. 🙂
The festival is a great way to jump into networking, especially if you’re new to it and a fun way to learn some new authors, get some books signed, and learn about the craft of writing as well.
This year, I’m volunteering. I will be back to share my experiences and anything that will be useful to you guys!
