Lectures & Speaking Topics

The Southern Writer
What is it that makes the South such fertile ground for writers? Author Rick Bragg tries to explain the pathos, violence, and humor that hang in the humid air, but disagrees that it has even one thing to do with "The War."
The Muse
Some insist that there is a magical, fairy-like creature that flits into our writing mind and spills lovely sentences. Writer Rick Bragg says the process is a bit uglier than that.
Writing in Color
The reader will not go with you unless you show him a road of color, imagery, detail. Good, terse writing might be fine . . . for a lumber yard inventory.
