November’s Monthly Program: “Path to Publication: A Writer’s Story”

Join us next Tuesday, November 8th, at The Edney Innovation Center on the 5th Floor to hear Randy Nabors and Deveraux Chivington share their experience in publishing books, what path they chose, and why.

Randy Nabors is pastor emeritus of New City Fellowship in Chattanooga, and missions pastor of First Presbyterian Church. Having been raised in the inner city projects of Newark, New Jersey, he has a passion for the issues of the poor, and has ministered in the inner city areas of Watts and Compton, California, as well as in St. Louis, Missouri. Out of this passion, his book, Merciful, was written as a way to offer strategies to address the issues affecting inner city and urban life.

In addition to writing nonfiction, he is a poet at heart, and a regular attender of the Barnes & Noble Open Mic.

Believing that good observers and listeners become good writers, Devereaux Chivington-Stebbins studied people and listened while growing up in Birmingham, Alabama. Her love for the history of ordinary people grew out of listening to her grandmothers tell about their lives. Devereaux writes as C. S. Devereaux and has published essays in The Sun magazine, short stories in the Chattanooga Writers’ Guild 2020 Anthology, and has a short story in the upcoming Jumpmaster Press Anthology, Realms of the Fantastic, scheduled for publication in November 2022.

Her books include Fall From Snowbird Mountain, early 2023 release by Jumpmaster Press, and Another Adventure, a ghost-written memoir privately published in 2016.

Devereaux is a member of the Chattanooga Writers’ Guild and the North Georgia Writers’ Group. Learn more at

Randy and Deveraux will lead the presentation in person at The Edney Innovation Center on the 5th floor in the large conference room. Doors open at 6:00, and the program will begin at 6:30 Eastern.

If you cannot be there in person, here is the LINK to join virtually.

Monthly Meetings are free and open to the public.
