The 2019 Featured Authors and Regional Writers lineups are coming together!  We think that we are assembling wonderful and exciting collection of authors for 2019 Festival attendees to see and we are proud to present to you the ones we have so far.  As more Featured Authors and Regional Writers are selected we will add them to the list below, so please check back from time to time to see new additions.  Please come and attend the 2019 Dahlonega Literary Festival on March 1-2, 2019.  Our programs promise to be fun, entertaining, and informative, AND you can meet the authors!

Our “2019 Featured Authors” and “2019 Regional Writers”  pages are currently under construction, but please check them out from time to time to see our progress and view the brief biographies and photos of all of our authors along with pictures of their book covers and plot summaries.

We are also very excited to have these Regional Writers participating in the 2019 Dahlonega Literary Festival!  Regional Writers are authors who have published one book or many.  They may be published by traditional publishers or self-published.  Most are from the Southeast and all have gone through our Review/Selection Process where their books, representing various genres, have been reviewed and selected as the best works of the authors who applied. Regional Writers may also be featured in our programming.  The Regional Writers will also have their book sales handled by FoxTale Book Shoppe located in the Fellowship Hall of the Dahlonega Baptist Church.  They will be available ONLY on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 9:00am-4:30pm, so please stop by and peruse and purchase their wonderful books.
