The name for the Stonepile Writers’ Group comes from Stonepile Gap, located at the intersection of US 19 and SR 60. In the center of the intersection, a large pile of stones marks the burial site of Trahlyta, a legendary Cherokee princess. Even today, passersby stop to add a stone to bring good fortune. The group’s name pays respect to the history of North Georgia while also representing “a building place that may be temporary as a pi9le of rocks, but it is of solid material and composed of individual contributions,” according to Alice Sampson, Director of the Appalachian Studies Center.
