With a love for poetic words and their meaning, a well respected business owner and native of Beaufort County had a vision. He wanted others to experience and feel the powerful meaning of words. The birth of the Pamlico Writers Group by Jerry Cuthrell in the late 70’s has made that dream what it is today.
Since its inception, the Pamlico Writers Group has helped many authors achieve their dreams. Some have written and published books of their own. Others have been inspired to resurrect works long forgotten. Many have come and gone, but the Pamlico Writers Group stands as a beacon of hope to future writers and their dreams.
Memories, is a collection of exemplary writing by our members and future
members. The prose and poetry in this volume represent a collage of work by
published authors and emerging writers. Pamlico Writers’ Group is particularly
honored to include prose and poetry from high school students—young emerging
writers to whom we entrust our future. Each writer whose work is included in
the anthology has expertly crafted a piece around his or her own interpretation
of this year’s theme—Reflections: Images and Memories. The collection is the
culmination of hard work and truly affirms the group’s commitment to its
mission. With this anthology, The Pamlico Writers’ Group is proud to deliver
its finest product to date.
