Report:

Words & Music
A Literary Conference in New Orleans

The Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society in New Orleans is a non-profit literary arts organization and the creator of Words & Music, a unique sort of writers’ conference, which is the center of a multi-discipline arts festival each fall. As a finalist in the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition, my tuition was waived and I was invited to attend their writers’ conference this past November. The Otis Faculty Development Grant gave me the opportunity to travel to New Orleans, to participate in the conference, and to receive my award.
