Carolinas Writers


      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).

Leon Smith, right, and David Napier perform for the 50+ Club at the H.B. Allen Library Sept. 10. Leon is our newest ACWC member and is a columnist along with his songwriting! Leon sang original compositions about his father called "Daddy's Songs" that brought a tear to many an eye.
