Meet Famous Tennessee Authors

Our Mission

AGT’s mission is (1) to support our East Tennessee authors by helping promote them and their works, (2) to encourage literacy so that Tennessee’s citizens can better understand our complex world and be better informed, (3) to encourage prospective authors to take up the pen and experience the joy of writing, and (4) to promote, celebrate and enjoy the rich literary tradition that past Tennessee authors have bequeathed to us.

AGT is a group of published authors in East Tennessee who work together to promote the books they have written and to share the costs of marketing them. AGT members sell their books at book signings, through amazon.com, book sellers such as Barnes and Noble, and their own websites.

  • All the words I use in my stories can be found in the dictionary—it’s just a matter of arranging them into the right sentences.

    - Somerset Maugham

  • I am irritated by my own writing. I am like a violinist whose ear is true, but whose fingers refuse to reproduce precisely the sound he hears within.

  • A library is a hospital for the mind.

    Anonymus

  • I divide all readers into two classes: those who read to remember and those who read to forget.
