Reese Library Special Collections will be sponsoring a writer’s workshop for the “Augusta-Richmond County Journal” on February 2, 2013 from 11 am to 1 pm. Dr. Russell Brown, the journal’s editor, will be available to discuss the writer’s guidelines and to offer critique on material written by students, faculty, and the community that might be suitable for inclusion in the publication.
Articles selected for the “Augusta-Richmond County Journal” deal primarily with historical topics relating to Augusta or Richmond County, Georgia from all time periods. This is an excellent opportunity to add professional writing credits to resumes for work or graduate school admission.
Dr. Russell Brown is a respected writer in local history whose works include: “A Flag for the Tenth Immunes,” in the books “Brothers to the Buffalo Soldiers: Perspectives on the African American Militia and Volunteers, 1865-1917,” ed. Bruce Glasrud, (2011); “Our Connection with Savannah: History of the 1st Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters, 1862-1865,” (2004); “From Greenhouses to Green Jackets: Some History and Personalities of the Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters,” with Vicki Greene, (2003); “Augusta’s ‘Pet Company': The Washington Light Artillery of Augusta, Georgia,” (2001); “To the Manner Born: The Life of General William H.T. Walker,” (1994); and “Fallen in Battle: American General Officer Combat Fatalities from 1775,” (1988).
The Augusta-Richmond County History writer’s workshop is also the kick-off event for Reese Library Special Collections to offer extended hours for community users on the first Saturday of every month from 9 to 5 when Reese Library is in operation.
