March Meeting | Writing Historical Fiction with Author Anthony Wood

March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm Free

Join us for an evening with author Anthony Wood!

Writing historical fiction can be fun and exciting, requiring a lot of hard work and diligence, but also can leave both author and reader having had a meaningful and rewarding literary experience. Anthony Wood will share with us reasons why we should write historical fiction, guiding principles, a path to follow for successful writing of the genre, the importance of research, some pitfalls, using ancestors in your story, and a bit about his own writing journey.

Author Bio 

Anthony Wood grew up in historic Natchez, Mississippi, fueling a life-long love of history. He lived and worked in Alaska for several years but returned to the South to minister nearly three decades among the poor, homeless, and incarcerated, inspiring him to co-author Up Close and Personal: Embracing the Poor.

Anthony’s writing has won a number of awards, including a Will Rogers Copper Medallion Award for his short story, Not So Long in the Tooth, in 2021. A number of his works have been published in Saddlebag DispatchesThe Vault of Terror, The Avocet: A Journal of Nature Poetry, Writer’s Monthly, and an anthology, Winning Writer’s Waltz.

The Fire that Calms the Storm, the fifth novel in Anthony’s historical fiction series was released in November, 2023. The 10 book series, A Tale of Two Colors, is the story of Lummy Tullos’s search for peace through the troublesome Civil War era.

Anthony enjoys roaming and researching historical sites, camping and kayaking on the Mississippi River, and being with family. Anthony and his wife, Lisa, live in Conway, Arkansas.
