- "Literary festivals ought to offer programs of interest for both readers and writers, and those programs ought to be well-organized by people who care about books and about the power of language. The Dahlonega Literary Festival achieves those “oughts” in considerable and memorable fashion, and does so in a place (Dahlonega) that has great personality.” --Terry Kay, author of Bogmeadow's Wish
- “Having attended and participated as an author in the 2011 Dahlonega Literary Festival, I cannot say enough in praise of the event--gracious hospitality, delicious food, wonderful people, stimulating conversation and riveting panel discussions. And, oh yes, lots and lots of great books and authors. Simply a grand weekend.”-- Charles Seabrook, author of Cumberland Island: Strong Women, Wild Horses
