Awards Gala 2003
Part of the Knoxville Writers' Guild mission is "to promote writing and creativity in the wider community through education, publication, and sponsorship of writing-related events." Beginning in 2002, we have added another goal: to begin a tradition of honoring local writers whose career achievements deserve the recognition of the wider community that is the Knoxville metropolitan area and our region as a whole. To read more about the poet, go to Iris Press.
Please join the Guild
in applauding writer George Scarbrough for the myriad
achievements of his career.
In addition to the Career Achievement Award, winners of the KWG's annual contests for short fiction, poetry and essays will be announced. This awards program will feature a cash bar, free finger foods, live music by the Rocky Wynder Jazz combo as well as appearances by celebrated writers, including Marilyn Kallet. Others on the program include KWG President Julie Auer, News-Sentinel columnist Don Williams, writers and poets Laura Still, Marybeth Boyanton and Judy Loest.
