Our Prince of Scribes Writers Conference
The essays in the award-winning anthology Our Prince of Scribes, edited by Nicole Seitz and Jonathan Haupt, honor Pat Conroy (1945-2016) as lifelong teacher, mentor, friend, and champion of his fellow writers. In that same spirit of mentorship, the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center will host a one-day writers conference in Aiken August 24, featuring five of the collection’s writers. William A. Balk Jr., Tim Conroy, Jonathan Haupt, Alexia Jones Helsley, and John Warley will offer a lively series of four writing workshops at the Aiken County Historical Museum and a panel discussion at the Aiken County Public Library. Presented in partnership with the South Carolina Writers Association.
