Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Be Part of an International Literary Event!

(press release)

Glenda Beall, Director of Writers Circle, and Robert S. King, Co-director of Future Cycle Press, invite all writers and poets to join us for an open microphone reading from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Saturday, September 29. The reading will be held at Bob Groves Enterprises building, 7540 Highway 64 West, Brasstown, NC 28902, located between Murphy and Hayesville, NC. The public is invited to read original works of poetry, fiction or non-fiction or just come and listen. This event is being held as part of the international literary event, 100 Thousand Poets for Change.

September 29 is an internationally special day for poets and writers. The 100 Thousand Poets for Change initiative is an international fellowship of poets and writers who are concerned about the state of our world and nations. As of today, more than 700 communities worldwide have scheduled events on September 29, and more are added every day. This is an opportunity for poets and writers in western North Carolina and north Georgia to have their voices heard as well.

Authors may also bring their books for sale at a table we provide. FutureCycle Press is particularly pleased to announce that it will have its new anthology, American Society: What Poets See, for sale at the reading. We will also have copies of the Netwest anthology, Echoes Across the Blue Ridge.

Those reading are asked to time their pieces and not to exceed three minutes each. Depending on the number of readers, we may have time for more than one title per reader, so bring two or three poems or short prose.

We are not requiring that all pieces read be specifically on the subject of social issues, though we encourage readers to do so. It is more important to show up and participate in whatever way feels comfortable. Invite friends and family.

It would help with planning the program if we knew who was coming and especially who planned to read. Please email Robert,, or Glenda and also mention if you will bring books to sell.
