The south's premier conference for readers AND writers! New and established authors join dedicated readers in a unique multi-arts festival sponsored by the Pirate's Alley Faulkner Society, Inc., created in 1990 on William Faulkner’s birthday by men and women dedicated to good books and their authors, including Nobel Laureate William Faulkner, who wrote his first novel, Soldiers’ Pay, in New Orleans.
Programming includes both literary programming for readers (featured speakers include Tim O'Brien, author of The Things They Carried, and Heidi Durrow, author of The Girl Who Fell From the Sky) and special programming for writers. Writers can enjoy master classes from leading faculty members, and writer tuition includes manuscript critiques with BOTH a top agent and a top editor! Tickets for Words & Music, 2010 go on sale June 1. We encourage you to register at our new, secure on-line ticket and package sales site, http://wordandmusic2010.eventbrite.com/.
Programming takes place at the host literary landmark, Hotel Monteleone and other special venues around New Orleans. A working schedule of sessions will be posted well in advance of that date. For further info, contact email@example.com
