Authors Guild of Tennessee is a group of about fifty published authors who live in East Tennessee. Many of our stories are set in this area, reflecting either its present-day culture or its history.

Click on any book to link to the Amazon listing for description, price, and reviews. Click on the author names for brief biographies and other information.

Mission Statement: To celebrate Tennessee’s rich literary tradition through opportunities for people to get to know authors more personally, discover details about their books, and find inspiration through their challenges and successes, which ultimately strengthens a desire to read while also serving as a vital catalyst for our authors to continue writing and selling their books.

AGT Monthly Meeting on Dec. 2

The Authors Guild of Tennessee’s regularly monthly meeting will be a dinner at Mimi’s Cafe in Turkey Creek.  AGT members and their guests will assemble in a private room at the popular restaurant at 6:00 p.m. As pre-selected by the members, the menu for the evening will feature Slow-Roasted Turkey, French Pot Roast, Coastal Shrimp Pasta, Mediterranean Salad with Roasted Chicken, Rustic Chicken with Artichokes, and a Brioche Cheeseburger.

Members are encouraged to bring a guest for this special get-together, which will be more of a social event than a business meeting.
