Harrison Scott Key is a local author of: “How to Stay Married”, “Congratulations, Who Are You Again?”, and “The World’s Largest Man”. He has won the Thurber Prize for American Humor, and his first TEDx talk went viral among a certain demographic.

Harrison’s humor and nonfiction have appeared in The Best American Travel Writing, Oxford American, Outside, The New York Times, The Bitter Southerner, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Town & Country, The Mockingbird, Salon, Savannah Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Image, Southern Living, Gulf Coast, and Creative Nonfiction. He holds an M.F.A. in creative nonfiction and a Ph.D. in playwriting and has worked at SCAD for quite literally thousands of years, where he’s held appointments as chair of liberal arts, professor of English, professor of writing, and executive dean. He lives in Savannah, Georgia, with three children and one wife.

Amy Paige Condon, also a local author, wrote her first short story as a first grader in Mrs. Henry’s class at Lee Britain Elementary in Irving, Texas, and won a poster in the class contest. From that moment forward, she knew she wanted to be a writer.

Amy has co-written three bestselling cookbooks: “The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook” (Artisan 2012), “The Wiley’s Championship Barbecue Cookbook” (Gibbs Smith 2014), “Bress ‘n’ Nyam: Gullah-Geechee Recipes from a Sixth-generation Farmer” (Countryman Press 2021), and is working on a fourth with Chef Todd Richards. She is the author of the biography “A Nervous Man Shouldn’t Be Here in the First Place: The Life of Bill Baggs,” about one of the most influential newspaper editors of the 20th century that almost no one has heard of. Since then, she has worked as a freelance journalist, a broadcast news producer, a magazine editor, and now as a content coach for the Savannah Morning News.
