Sanford Writers Club off to a Start!

Sanford, NC (May 12, 2009) – Sanford Writers, a club for local writers, will launch on June 15th at Lee County Library.

This group, which hopes to include writers of fiction, nonfiction and poetry, will meet monthly in the Auditorium at the library. It will be a forum for local writers to share their work with other writers or attend a lecture or writing workshop.

The organizational meeting is set for Monday, June 15th, at 10:0 am, at Lee County Library. At this time local writers can help to plan best meeting times and preferred content for the club.

Sanford Writers is the first project of a new nonprofit organization, World Writers Resources, as part of its Appalachian Writers Program. Its website is online at

Dr. Bruce Cook, President of World Writers Resource, is launching the group. He and his wife Eileen moved to Sanford just over a year ago from Chicago where he worked on the staff of the Chicago Sun-Times. Cook still completes projects for the Sun-Times and teaches at DeVry University in Raleigh.
