Write On!

Write On! is a reinvigorated writing group, which meets once a month (the 4th Monday) at 6:00 pm at Gilmer Arts. Led by award-winning children’s author, Kelly Bingham, and Shorter College English professor, Dr. Marcia Bost, its members meet to share drafts and manuscripts, discuss writing approaches and talk through writers’ block, among other things.

There is no requirement to sign up, but if you are new to the group, call Gilmer Arts at 706 635-5605 or The Martyn House at 706-635-5565, and let them know you are coming. If you have questions, contact Kelly Bingham at kellybinghambooks@gmail.com or Marcia Bost at mbost@shorter.edu.

Meet the Authors

Each year, usually in late March and occasionally at other times throughout the year, Gilmer Arts hosts a Meet the Authors event.  This event varies from year to year, including nationally, regionally and locally known authors and writers. It includes book signings by well-known authors, workshops, presentations and other events of literary interest.  Featured guests authors have included award-winning authors Raymond L. Atkins, Kelly Bingham, Michael K. Brown, Lynn Cullen, and Victoria Wilcox.

Writers’ Workshops

Gilmer Arts hosts one or two writers’ workshops each year, featuring locally or regionally known authors.  These include manuscript critiques for previously submitted manuscripts, practical tips for how to get your work started, completed and published, presentations on specific components of writing, and hands-on workshops with writing exercises.
