From Lottie Boggan:
“I have a little piece of news I’m right proud to pass on. I just got a print out on the internet that one of my novels, Mr. Honeycut, was a semi-finalist in the Faulkner Contest.”
She is a contributor to such anthologies as ‘From The Sleeping Porch’, ‘Fireflies in a Fruit Jar’, and ‘Mad Dogs of Moonshine’ – all of which are available at Lemuria Books. Mrs. Boggan is also in ‘Sweet Tea and Afternoon Tales: More Stories from the South’ and ‘Teacakes and Afternoon Tales: New Stories from MIssissippi’ – both available from the Gulf Coast Writer’s Association book page. We strongly encourage you to check both out!

From Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society:
The Society was created as a salute to Mr. Faulkner, certainly, but also to all good writers, the men and women who provide us with the finest possible role models for encouraging young people to discover for themselves the rewards of reading and writing well. The Society’s most ambitious annual projects are: The William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition, open to all writing in English anywhere, and Words & Music, a Literary Feast in New Orleans, five days of high quality literary programming for readers and writers.
A competitive talent search open to all writing in English, the William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition is for previously unpublished work. Entries are accepted in seven categories: Novel, Novella, Novel-in-Progress, Short Story, Essay, Poetry, and Short Story by a High School Student. Overall goals of the competition are to seek out new, talented writers and assist them in finding literary agents and, ultimately, publishers for their work.
