When: Sat., Oct. 15, 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. 2016
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. 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 with author signings. However, the focus will be on performances and pairings that mix genres and media.
