2012 Daddy’s Girls’ Weekend

Writers’ Event in April, 2012, in Mobile, Alabama

Dr. Sue Brannan Walker, the Poet Laureate of the State of Alabama, would like to let creative writers know of this up coming exciting and informative event.  

Two of Alabama’s finest writers are teaching workshops at the 2012 Daddy’s Girls’ Weekend in Mobile, Alabama in April. They are just a part of a truly wonderful opportunity available at this readers’ and writers’ conference.

The conference is the brainchild of Carolyn Haines, the 2010 Harper Lee Award winner as Alabama’s Distinguished Writer of the Year.

Sue Brannan Walker, Alabama Poet Laureate, is teaching the workshop “Writing Big Daddy.” As an outgrowth of the competition among the male faculty to be crowned “Big Daddy” at the workshop, Sue’s workshop will explore the concept of Daddy as story, verse and flash drama.

The rest of the workshops are filled out with such luminaries as Dean James, a New York Times Bestselling author with the “Cat in the Stacks” books, Urban Fantasy author Anton Strout, Paranormal Romance author Deborah LeBlanc, agent Marian Young, Penguin editor Michelle Vega, and Tyrus Books Publisher Benjamin LeRoy.

Workshops include “The Organic Growth of Southern Character” with Carolyn Haines, the “Author/Editor relationship with Dean James and Michelle Vega, and a panel on e-publishing with all members of the faculty.

Join us at the historic Malaga Inn in downtown Mobile for a weekend of inspiration and entertainment.
