ABOUT THE FLATIRON WRITERS: The original Flatiron Writers began meeting in the Flatiron Building on Asheville’s Wall Street in 1993. In 2008, the group won a Regional Artist Project Grant to publish a short story collection, Irons in the Fire: Stories From the Flatiron Writers, and to develop a website. Since then the Flatiron Writers have made it their mission to serve the broader western North Carolina writing community by offering workshops, salons, a contest and other events. Flatiron Writers have been widely published and produced. Bios of current members can be found HERE
