2022 West Virginia Book Festival Writing Workshop with A. S. Drayton: Inspiring Introspection Through Extrospection
A. S. Drayton’s writing focuses on the idea of expanding one's horizons and thorough introspection and self reflection. Through presenting the themes in his nonfiction memoir Are You Okay? The Carryover of Kindness and his upcoming fiction novel Through the Eyes of the Beholder, A. S. Drayton will discuss the importance of writing stories that inspire deep thought and consideration of differing perspectives. 

About A.S.
A.S. Drayton Books was formed after its founder, Anthony S. Drayton III, rediscovered his love for writing and weaving tales while working on his award-winning memoir Are You Okay? The Carryover of Kindness. What began in 2019 as a one-off project, dedicated to his future children, grew into something more. Through the process, Anthony found his passion, and (with the collaboration of his talented friends) A.S. Drayton Books was born. The goal is simple: promote personal growth through books, short stories, art and games that foster a mindset of both introspection and the expansion of one’s horizons. Drayton's next book, Through the Eyes of The Beholder, is intended to release late fall/winter 2022.

This writing workshop is part of the 2022 West Virginia Book Festival and will take place in the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center. Find the most up-to-date room information here:
