The Loss of North Georgia Poet, Bettie Sellers

It is with deepest regret we learned of the passing on May 17, of Bettie Sellers, former Poet Laureate of Georgia.
Read more about Bettie Sellers here.

I met Bettie, loved her poetry and bought her books when I first came to Hayesville, NC in 1995. She was a wonderful speaker and an avid supporter of the Byron Herbert Reece Society in north Georgia. Her voice can be heard on the video played at the Reece center in Union County.

Our condolences to her family.

I am also sad to hear about Dr. Bettie Sellers passing away. She was an outstanding poet, friend, and my mentor. We will all miss her, but we are better persons for knowing her. She will live on through her beautiful poetry.
Blessings to her family.
