WORDSHOPS

The WordShop component of the Louisiana Book Festival offers writing WordShops emphasizing craft. Faculty, local and national, are highly credentialed and have a commitment to teaching. WordShops are serious educational experiences, presented in a supportive, informal environment, appropriate for both novice and advanced writers, as well as anyone who enjoys books and good conversation.

Equally important is the development of the Louisiana community of students and teachers who support art in literature as well as one another's pursuits. The Louisiana Book Festival WordShops function under the assumption that everyone is creative and anyone can write. We offer the tools to craft your work. We respect you and your writing, and whatever your writing background, we treat you like a professional and strive to boost your confidence to create. The varied backgrounds that students can bring to the classroom enrich the creative process for everyone; we welcome a diverse mix of participants.

Nurture Your Writing Potential!

What do Rick Bragg, Ernest Gaines, Lillian Hellman and Truman Capote share? They were all writers who at some point decided that they wanted to learn how to be writers, and also had held Louisiana as a muse. Organizers of the Louisiana Book Festival understand that deep calling and have recruited some of the best wordsmiths in the book business to share their techniques.

Learn to Talk the Writer Talk!

In addition to a learning opportunity, the organizers also view the Wordshops as a networking tool for aspiring writers. No matter how far writers want to take their interest in writing, the workshops are meant for everyone.
