Mitchell Community College presents the 2013 Doris Betts Spring Writers Festival, named in honor of Iredell County’s favorite literary daughter, Doris Waugh Betts, and featuring readings by authors Stephanie Powell Watts, Joyce Moyer Hostetter, Maureen Sherbondy, and Lynn Kostoff. In addition to the readings, Maureen Sherbondy will be conducting a poetry craft workshop and Lynn Kostoff will be conducting a fiction workshop (both workshops are free, but pre-registration is required). There will also be a dinner featuring a presentation on the life and literary legacy of Doris Betts by Dr. Elizabeth Evans and a reading by the 2013 Doris Betts Legacy Writer, Thomas Eric Simonson. The dinner requires reservations and $8 per meal. The festival is funded in part through a grant from the NC Arts Council Grassroots Arts Program, the Iredell Arts Council, and the Mitchell Community College Endowment for Excellence.
