Tommy Allen, president of the Anson County Historical Society, and Kaye Ratlffe, ACWC president, share a look at The Yadkin-Pee Dee River Atlas that the writers' club donated to the ACHS. The atlas contains detailed maps and information about the riverís 200-mile stretch from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the South Carolina line. The ACWC supplied information about the outdoor drama "A Ripple in the River" and the canal in Old Sneedsboro. The atlas is available for perusal at the historical society office on East Wade Street in Wadesboro.

      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).
