      The Anson County Writers' Club fosters the art of writing in Anson County through support, awareness and recognition of all writers -- from the beginner to the published author.
     This is accomplished through regular meetings, workshops, lectures and readings; through our annual contests in prose and poetry culminating in a public awards ceremony; and through our grant program.
     The Anson County Writers' Club meets the fourth Sunday of each month (except July and December) at 3:00 p.m. in the Preston A. Burns Conference Room at the Anson County Chamber of Commerce, 107-A East Wade Street, Wadesboro, North Carolina.

We have our photos on Pinterest!
