Thursday, November 12, 2015


Mary Nida Smith founded The Writers Support Group in the Spring of 1998, in the Lakeview/Bull Shoals area and when the Baxter County Library had an opening, she moved the group there. Later the group voted to change the name to Twin Lakes Writers. Smith invited several authors and editors as speakers to learn the craft of writing. She started and was the first editor of their newsletter, and organized the first writers conference in this area. Max McCoy, Ellen Gray Massey, and Vicki Cox were the speakers. The conference and other workshops were held at the Bel Arco Resort in Bull Shoals. Smith has kept a record from day one. On the patio of the children's library down stairs of the Donald W. Reynolds Library is a brick  that states; Mary Nida Smith, Founder of the Twin Lakes Writers.
