The Flatiron Building in downtown Asheville has been an architectural landmark since the 1920's. Since the 1990's it's also become a kind of literary landmark as the meeting place of the Flatiron Writers, a group of writers who have supported, encouraged and critiqued one another as they have developed their skills and polished their manuscripts.
Now, thanks to a Regional Artist Project Grant, three members of the group have had their work published. The volume is called, appropriately enough, Irons in the Fire, and the Flatiron Writers will be at Accent on Books this coming Friday, beginning at 6:00 PM, to talk about their work and sign copies of the book. The three writers are Geneve Bacon, Toby Heaton, and Heather Newton, and the short novels that each have written for this collection range widely in theme and subject matter. Their success is yet another indication of the rich collection of literary talent that can be found in Asheville and Western North Carolina, and we hope you can join us to congratulate them on their accomplishments.
