      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. (see venue in meeting announcement below).

We have our photos on Pinterest!

A reception for the winners of the 2019 contests in prose and poetry was held after the Awards Ceremony on Feb. 23. Click HERE for the list of winners.
