The Charlotte Writers' Club, along with nearly a dozen community partners, is planning Carolinas WordFest, a celebration of the power of words and the wealth of talented writers in North and South Carolina who employ them so effectively. WordFest, which will be held October 15, 2016, in various venues in Charlotte’s First Ward, will include not only poets, memoirists and novelists, but scriptwriters, playwrights, storytellers and lyricists. The free, inclusive, interactive festival also will offer panels and workshops, as well as a book market and author signings. However, the focus will be on performances and pairings that mix genres and media. Playwrights will seek audience feedback on works-in-progress; divergent voices from fiction and nonfiction will reflect the immigrant experience; and children will take home stories born of their imaginations. Designed to educate and entertain, Carolinas WordFest will inspire both today's wordsmiths and readers and those of the next generation.
