The Brevard Authors Guild (BAG) originated in April 2015 with a gathering of the area authors listed below.
The participants realized the need for an organization to serve a diverse population of published authors from Brevard and its surroundings whose works needed to be brought to the attention of area readers. These writers have already produced books included fiction and nonfiction of various genres and topics:
- Folk lore
The group formally organized and adopted bylaws in December 2015 with the purpose of supporting and promoting published authors in this region. Through its web site, press communications, events, and activities, the Guild works to bring its members and their works before the public. All published authors in western North Carolina are invited to join.
