Birthplace Foundation Vice President on Writing Events and the Birthplace

In this week's issue of the Pocahontas Times, Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Foundation Vice President Jolie Lewis uses her regular column "The Manuscript" to focus on writing, and how the legacy of Pearl S. Buck is still being used to help cultivate new talent, today.

The column gives some interesting detail on the program of several upcoming events such as the Pearl Buck Birthday Celebration, and the Writers Workshop and Blueberry Workshop.  It also talks about our new collaboration with West Virginia Writers, an association that promotes and supports writing and writers throughout the state.  This partnership resulted in
1) the presentation of two workshops inspired by Pearl Buck's writing at the West Virginia Writers annual conference, and 2) the announcement of winners in a brand-new category of the West Virginia Writers contest titled the Pearl Buck Award for Writing for Social Change.
For an account of the workshops and of the awards announcement, continue reading the story at the website of the Pocahontas Times.  A list of winners of the Pearl Buck Award is available here. Click on the link WVW Winners 2012 and download the pdf.
