Here at Galliott Studios we have been getting excited for the Writers Fest! The festival – officially named “Writers at Woody Point” – takes place August of every year and is now into its 10th year! During the week-long festival, Galliott Studios hosts free intimate readings by several of the writers. Along with the Writers events held at the shop, we try to keep the excitement going with other special events put on by Galliott Studios and friends. To make our schedule a little easier to follow, we have broken the events down day by day. All events are taking place at Galliott Studios. For further information feel free to call us at (709) 453-2142
