Writing Workshop: The Self & Symbols of the South

October 14, 2017 at 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Minda Honey will lead a public writing workshop in conjunction with the performance of Unraveling by Sonya Clark.

Visitors are welcome to participate in a guided workshop focused on identifying your personal symbols of the South and how those symbols shape who you are. The Confederate flag is a symbol of the South for some, but for others lightning bugs, pound cake, and red, rich soil are the symbols that tie them to this region. Participants will have an opportunity to share their writing and listen to others.

Program is included with price of general admission and Southern Accent special exhibition ticket.

Registration encouraged. Register!
