Writing Boot Camp

The Anson County Writers' Club awarded a $1,500 grant to Ansonville teacher Tracy Preslar in 2008. Tracy used the money to promote writing in a writing preparedness Boot Camp Nov. 3-5, 2010. The fourth grade students learned about hooks, creative description, using active voice and more tips for becoming a better writer. Carla and Sandy visited one of the Boot Camp classes Nov. 4 during which students created their own words to a marching cadence.

People Fest 2010

The Anson County Writers' Club manned a booth at the 2010 People Fest on Oct. 9 in Uptown Wadesboro. The club sold copies of "Anson Pathways VII" as well as anthologies from past contests, plus chances on a gift basket containing a copy of "Angels Unaware," a novel by member Sandy Bruney, a cup with the book's cover on imprinted on it, a box of tea bags and cookies to

ensure a pleasant reading experience. Ginny Boyes was the winner. Shown in the photo are Rufus Getzen, club president, and members Randy Tarlton, Karen MacMurray and Ruth Hickman. In the photo on right, Ruth persuades a passerby to take a chance on winning the gift basket.
