Athens State Writing Blog

Local Writers

There is a group of creative writers who meet 3-4 times per year and discuss their writing in Athens, AL. This group met weekly for about a year in 2013 and early 2014, and decided to continue to keep in touch via email and meet a few times per year.

 This community writing group is open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the greater community in Athens and the North Alabama region.

  Those interested in participating in this group may contact the Writing Center Director, Dr. Tony Ricks, for further information. Dr. Ricks started the group in 2013, hoping it would become a support system for writers looking to publish their ideas or to refine their creative work. The group has served this purpose thus far, and continues to develop.

 If you’re interested in joining this group, please contact Dr. Tony Ricks for information.  Ricks can be reached by phone, 256-216-6670 or by email
