Meacham Writers’ Workshop 2022

Hear from published authors as the Meacham Writers' Workshop returns in 2022, now in a virtual format.


Started in the 80s by Richard Jackson, The Meacham Writers’ Workshop intends to bring in published authors from around the world to read their works of prose or poetry aloud, host discussion sessions, and inspire aspiring writers through support and constructive criticism.


The workshop benefits aspiring writers by providing them with varying viewpoints from authors and giving them the opportunity to have their writing be reviewed by the selection of authors visiting in seminars.


One of Richard’s favorite outcomes of each year is seeing the growth in the writing abilities of students and other attendees. The exposure to published authors, some originating from Chattanooga, offers inspirations to aspiring writers and a great opportunity to learn and grow in their skills.


The Meacham Writers’ Workshop will be hosted virtually this year, and all writers, of all ages and abilities, are able to attend the event for free. If you enjoy reading more than writing, the workshop offers a unique and amazing experience to hear published authors read from their works.
