Neither should writing.  

Instead come share in the passion, the joy, and our members’ enthusiasm for the written word!  Writers Read III will take place on May 10th, 7:00pm-9:00pm, at The Coffee Shop of Athens at 2950 Atlanta Hwy, Athens, GA 30606.

Readers will include Jennifer Innes, Tanya Moulton, Zhanna P. Rader, Elsa Russo, Lisa Smartt, Rob White, and more!

This event is free and appropriate for mature children and older.  So if you’re looking for a great event to share with your Mom this Mother’s Day Weekend, or if you just love good writing — come join us!

Writers will be available to talk after the event.  Also, let us know if you would be interested in reading at a future event.

Just Who are We?

writersread1The Athens Writers Association was founded on March 18th, 2013 and we have come so far so fast!  We are a proud and creative group — proud to be Athenians and to share this town with so many amazing souls and such an outpouring of talents and camaraderie.  Athens is a world famous music scene and rightly so, but those of us who live here know that it is so much more.  From classes and festivals at the historic Lyndon House, to the wonderfully talented performances at Rabbit Box and Word of Mouth, from local craftspeople to renowned painters, we honor and are inspired by those who have come before us and hope in time to add our own little corner of magic to a city already bursting at the seams with creativity and potential.

If you get a chance, please come to our next meeting.  We’d love to introduce ourselves to you, and hear your ideas about what you’d like to see the AWA do in its second year of life —

We filled every seat in the house (and the Coffee Shop of Athens had to bring in a few lawn chairs from outside)!  ‘Writers Read II’ and was a big hit and everyone had a great time.  Thanks to our wonderful readers (pictured above, left to right) Rob White, Chris Jansen, Elsa Russo, Kevin Townsend, Jill Hartmann-Roberts, Katherine Cerulean, Miles McClellan, Nancy Lynn Scott, Jennifer Innes, Greg Davis, and Sam Thomas (not pictured).

We’ll have another reading on March 26th called ‘Writers Read – After Dark’.  See our ‘Events’ page for more info on the kind of writing we are spot-lighting at that event.  We still have a few reader slots open; please email Katherinecerulean@gmail.com if you are interested in participating.

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us.  You were a great crowd and your support means so much.  Can’t wait for the next one!
