Lost State Writers Guild

             Lost State Writers Guild meets June 6, 2019 in Johnson City at Golden Corral Restaurant, 11:30am.


For the June meeting our speaker will be storyteller/writer Madge Rohrer. After retiring from a 30-year career in Corporate America, Madelyn Rohrer moved to Northeast Tennessee in the mid-1990’s and started strolling the streets of Jonesborough as a tour guide. Little did she know it would launch her into a second career of storytelling and writing. She is currently a performing member of the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild and a member of the National Storytelling Network, the Lost State Writers Guild, Virginia Writers Club, and the Appalachian Authors Guild. Her published works include: Tiggy Tiggy Touch Wood (2014), Shoes in the River (2015), and Touched by Tennessee (2016). Since 2017 she has written a sequel to Shoes in the River, a set of CDs containing many of the short stories she has told on stage, an audio book, and several children’s books.
