“An unexpected addition to my collection of works that I read over and over again. The stories, essays, and poems of The Stonepile Writers’ Anthology provide provocatove reflections of our common human experience.” – Joyce Stavick, co-editor of The Artist as Activist in Appalachia
Stonepile Gap is the supposed burial site of Trahlyta, a Cherokee Indian princess. Passersby customarily drop a stone on the grave for good luck. The Stonepile Writers’ Anthology is a collection of poems, short stories, memoirs, and prose by writers in the North Georgia community. This Anthology is inspired by and pays tribute to Dahlonega’s Stonepile Writers Group, a creative writing group that meets the first Thursday of every month. Begun in 2007, the Stonepile Writers comprise a disparate group of local business people, instructors, lawyers, students, and more, all of whom share the creative impulse through their critique writing workshops.
“This Stonepile Writers’ Anthology represents a collection of some of the best of North Georgia writing. Introspective, relevant, sad, and warmly humorous, these works cover a range of human insight and expectation that will resonate long after the reader has closed the book.” – Brian Jay Corrigan, Georgia Author of the Year, 2006
