Following the success of the Knoxville Writers Guild First Spelling Bee, the KWG is happy to announce plans for a second bee, with changes, improvements, and intergenerational, challenging fun. 




Planned for Thursday, September 7, 2017, this Bee will be open to ages 15 and up, providing a great opportunity for high school age youth to compete with teachers, parents, and community adults. Words will be drawn from vocabulary used in great literature as well as from other non-technical sources. Location of the Bee is Central United Methodist Church, 201 East Third Avenue.




Major funding has already been received from the Pilot Flying J Corporation. Additional funding will be sought, as well as door prizes for spellers and supporters. Mike Smith, of Testprep Experts, is managing the Second KWG Bee. Anyone interested in any aspect of designing or promoting the Bee can contact him at
