Weymouth Center

Non-member

Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities has flourished as a full-fledged cultural center since 1979, with an established Chamber Music Series, Ragan Writers Series and Arts and Humanities Lecture Series. The Writers-in-Residence program was the first program instituted at the Weymouth Center. Initiated in 1979 by Sam Ragan, Weymouth President and NC Poet Laureate, and the Friends of Weymouth Board of Directors, it was a natural addition to the literary tradition established by James Boyd. Boyd was a writer of significance who, together with his wife Katharine, hosted several literary greats such as Thomas Wolfe, Paul Green, Maxwell Perkins, Sherwood Anderson, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, among others. Open to North Carolina natives, current residents, or to those with significant ties to the state, the program has nurtured and inspired hundreds of writers over the years, many of whom attribute their flow of creativity to the beautiful surroundings and peaceful solitude.
