Rosemary Daniell

ROSEMARY DANIELL is the award-winning author of eight books of poetry and prose, including her revolutionary memoirs, "Fatal Flowers: On Sin, Sex and Suicide in the Deep South" and "Sleeping with Soldiers." Among her many awards are two N.E.A. fellowships, one in poetry, another in fiction. The founder and leader of Zona Rosa Writing-and-Living Workshops, she is known as one of the best writing coaches in the country; over 100 Zona Rosans to date have become published and/or award-winning authors. Her books on Zona Rosa include "Secrets of the Zona Rosa: How Writing (and Sisterhood) Can Change Women's Lives," and its prequel, "The Woman Who Spilled Words All Over Herself: Writing and Living the Zona Rosa Way." Most recently, her work appeared in "Sugar in My Bowl: Real Women Write about Real Sex," edited by Erica Jong.

Rosemary has a knack for inspiring both beginning and experienced writers, and she’s bringing her magic to the 2012 Crossroads Writers Conference, October 5-7, at the Macon Convention Center and Marriott City Center Hotel.


NEW! Rosemary will be offering individual coaching sessions on the day of the conference. You can meet one-on-one with her for $75 for 30 minutes or $150 for an hour. (You will need to bring a section of your work in progress {10 pages of prose or less with a synopsis, if needed; or 6-8 pages of poetry} to your session).
