About our featured writer:
John G. WilliamsJohn G. Williams is from Yemassee, SC, a small town along the South Carolina coast. At seventeen, anxious for travel and bored by school and small town life, John enlisted in the Marines. Four years later, after completing tours in Europe, the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia, he returned to South Carolina where he attended The Citadel and graduated from Charleston Southern University.

Now retired, John has worked as a teacher, stock broker, and realtor. He also served twenty-six years in the South Carolina Army National Guard.

John now lives in Beaufort, SC, with his wife Marion. He’s currently working on his next novel, tentatively titled Pocotaligo Point.

This program and others like this would not be possible without your financial help for which, as always, Pat Conroy Literary Center gratefully thanks you.
