This past weekend, I was honored to participate in the first ever writing event in my hometown. Kudzu Chronicles was held this year as a part of the annual Art on the Square. I entered the essay contest, and received 2nd place. The essay needed to contain the words Athens, kudzu, and MoonPie. This was a fun prompt, and I enjoyed writing the story I submitted.
On Friday night, Michael and I went to the Meet and Greet where Alabama authors were signing books. I also received my second place award. On Saturday, I attended two of the writing work shops. They made me even more eager to keep on writing. It was a very informative event, and I can’t wait until next year! Thank you Athens State University Center for Lifelong Learning and Spirit of Athens Art on the Square for hosting Kudzu Chronicles.
