On March 5, the Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville, Florida will host their annual Writers’ Festival. From the festival’s website:
The mission of the Douglas Anderson Writers’ Festival is to provide hands-on, craft oriented workshops with professional writers and scholars, furnishing an invaluable and affordable opportunity for the emerging young writers of our community. The overarching purpose of the project is to provide exposure to the diversity of writing in the literary professional world and also to provide students with time, space and encouragement to contemplate and practice the art of creative writing.
Our goal is the intersection of writers of all ages and from all parts of our community, with the added goal of opening up a dialogue in a supportive environment that can be personally stimulating and enlightening.
