The 2013 Southern Literary Festival in Columbus, Georgia features public readings by writers Tim O'Brien, Natasha Trethewey, Kevin Wilson, Dan Albergotti, and Madge McKeithen. The SLF is an organization of southern colleges and schools founded in 1937 to promote southern literature through this undergraduate writing conference that entails writing workshops in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and playwriting; a writing competition in those areas as well as in formal essay and literary-arts magazine; and a venue in which the participating students, faculty, and general public attend readings by well known writers.
The workshops, writing competitions, and events other than the public readings are closed to all but attendees from member schools. The readings will be free and open to the public and have been scheduled: Thursday, March 28, 7:30 p.m.: Kevin Wilson and Madge McKeithen; Friday, March 29, 7:30 p.m.: Tim O’Brien; Saturday, March 30, 11:00 a.m.: Natasha Trethewey and Dan Albergotti. All readings will be followed by a brief book-signing.
