Chattahoochee Valley Writers Conference

Chattahoochee Valley Writers Conference

The Chattahoochee Valley Writers Conference, now renamed the Columbus Writers Guild Conference, returns in 2019 at the Columbus Marriott in the Columbus, GA historic district Sept. 20-21. The conference, now in its 13th year, brings together lovers of the literary arts through various panels, master classes, and networking events.

Highlights for the conference include Poetry-Under-the-Stars, a dinner theater, contests, networking, and Master Classes on a variety of topics.

The conference begins with a wine-and-cheese party at the Rothschild-Pound House Inn on Friday, Sept. 20 at 6 pm. Join us to meet the conference faculty as well as authors, playwrights, acquisition editors, poets, and literary enthusiasts in one of Columbus' most beautiful locations. The event includes poetry readings in the inn's courtyard.

The Master Classes will be held at the downtown Marriott on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9-4, with registration opening at 8:30 am.

We continue last year's success with a dinner theater showcasing one-act plays. To be held at The Loft at 7 pm on Sept. 21, the theater event combined with the offerings of the Loft's fabulous chefs concludes the conference.

Attendees can meet the faculty at our poetry kick-off, speak one-on-one about their project with acquisition editors, and expand their knowledge and horizons.
