The Alabama Shakespeare festival is celebrating Southern Literature.
Today is the Annual Southern Writers Project.
Letting story-tellers have a chance to develop work by teaming up with actors, directors, and an audience.
Four weeks are chosesn to workshop, for live readings and discussion.
With a few breaks for helpings of fine southern food.
Some writers travel from across the country to be a part of it.
The Alabama Shakespeare Festival's goal is to create theater that speaks specifically to the people of our region.
