There must be something in the soil! Three of America’s most celebrated authors called central Georgia home. Alice Walker, Flannery O’Connor, and Joel Chandler Harris began their literary journeys within 20 miles of Eatonton, Georgia. Together, their writing chronicles more than a century of creative Southern traditions.

Georgia Writers Museum honors our hometown authors through three exhibits that explore their paths to literary success. Walker, O’Connor, and Harris were drawn to writing by differing circumstances, but they shared an unwavering passion for literature, as do the over 60 members of the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame exhibited at Georgia Writers Museum in partnership with the University of Georgia’s Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

Georgia Writers Museum is dedicated to inspiring today’s writers and readers and celebrating Georgia’s literary heritage.

GWM celebrates the state’s rich literary history, promotes its contemporary writers, educates readers and writers of all ages, and connects people to the literary arts of Georgia.

To be the state’s foremost resource for Georgia readers and writers.
