High Country Writers organization was founded in 1995 to lend support to aspiring writers in the High Country of North Carolina.  Since that time it has grown from a group of half a dozen, focusing specifically on romance writing, to an organization of over fifty members, actively pursuing some form of written expression. 

Members include writers of fiction and non-fiction  -- mystery, romance, poetry, Civil War,  Appalachian women, memoir, erotica, Roman historical, young adult fiction and non-fiction, children's books, local history, real estate, as well as Southern fiction.

Our goal remains to work toward and achieve publication for all our members who desire publication.  Examine the links on our Members Page to get a better idea of our success in this area.

Our April 28th Critique will be of Sharon Howard's work. The link for the manuscript was sent as an attachment with your April HCW Journal.

Members, be sure to fill out your Writer's Profile. You can download it here and either e-mail or mail the completed form to Beatrix McGee.
