We are pleased to announce the inaugural publication of the Red Hills Writers Project:
Between Two Rivers: Stories from the Red Hills to the Gulf
Edited by Susan Cerulean, Janisse Ray, and Laura Newton Between Two Rivers: Stories From the Red Hills to the Gulf

Click here to preview the complete table of contents and a few sample pages in PDF format.

This anthology is intended to spark important conversations from Thomasville to Panacea, from Apalachicola to Aucilla, about how we might collectively guide our rapidly-growing region into a future that won't break our hearts.

In this unique volume, you will experience this land through the stories of:

  • the truly indigenous, including a titled Creek chief from Blountstown
  • an 82-year-old naturalist and worm grunter;
  • our area's premiere naturalists, including Bruce Means, Jack and Anne Rudloe and Jim Cox;
  • brilliant local writers, who will share their fierce love of this bioregion and its irreplaceable natural treasures.
