South Carolina has a rich literary tradition with a flourishing community of writers. From the beloved, widely acclaimed Pat Conroy to more regional voices, stories born in the Palmetto State spotlight her beauty, culture and history.
This series will explore the works and wisdom of writers born and bred in South Carolina as well as SC storytellers living outside the state.
A variety of sources are utilized ranging from SCETV’s KnowItAll.Org series A Literary Tour of South Carolina to first person experiences at the SC Book Festival, author workshops and conferences. The hope is to inspire you to experience the rich literature of this place among the palmettos and pines. Perhaps you will find guidance and encouragement for your own writing or to share with students if you are a writing teacher.
