Calling All Authors!

posted Feb 27, 2012, 12:55 PM by txword wrangler
Are you a Texas author interested in the Texas Word Wrangler Festival? Please see our Resources page to view the latest author call  and submission guidelines for our 2012 TWWF.

Giddings Public Library & Cultural Center and the Giddings Area Chamber of Commerce invite all published Texas authors to submit a book for consideration in our upcoming 7th Annual Texas Word Wranglers Festival on Friday, September 14, 2012. We also want to give our community an opportunity to meet these authors and learn about the writing craft.

We are looking for authors of books on the following subjects: children’s books, the art of quilting, archeology, poetry, Texas cookbooks, bird watching, fiction, history, historical fiction, mystery, romance, music, Texas Gardening, and anything related to Texas. We have a day-long festival at the Giddings Public Library & Cultural Center where authors sell their books and take questions. Some authors read or talk to groups of students that come in to the library.

On Thursday September 13th, during the day, the authors are invited to visit the Giddings Public Schools to talk to students about the writing process, ideas for stories, how a book is taken from the idea to the written page and much more.

Thursday evening a fundraising gala event is held to introduce the authors to the community. Authors receive two complimentary tickets to attend the gala and will have a table available to pre-sell and sign books to the invitation-only crowd. On Friday, authors will have their same tables for the day to sell to the public. Breakfast and lunch are included for participating authors.
