West Virginia Writers at 6th WV Book Festival -
October 21 & 22 - Charleston Civic Center

This is one of West Virginia’s premier literary fairs and this year’s line up is a class act. There's a low hum of excitement to be heard as publishers, authors, booksellers, and noted presenters hone their presentation in typical last moment preparation. Bobbie Ann Mason is one of the featured authors. Admission is free.

WV Writers will be kicking off their 2007 membership drive with non-stop drawings, giveaways, and plenty of info on their 2007 Spring Writing Competition. WVW awards more than six thousand dollars in prize money in the annual WVW Spring Writing Competition. Go to for the official entry form.

At WVW's exhibit, you will find the sparkling new WV Roundtable Anthology, ‘Mountain Voices’ - a collection of the best mountain stories by Mountain State authors - now available for the first time.

Visit the WVW Exhibit and meet WV Writers, Inc. members: award winning author, Keith Maillard; poet and editor of Wild Sweet Notes, Kirk Judd; author, publisher, and teacher, Delilah O’ Haynes; author of ‘Southern Fried Women’ and speaker, Pamela King Cable; author of ‘Attitude Therapy’ and motivational speaker, Deb Copeland; founder of Mountain audiobooks, Ross Ballard II; and author, chef, and weaver of Italian lore, Rosalyn Queen Alonso.
