By writers, for writers. A production of Clemson Road Creative.
South Carolina is home to hundreds of writers, storytellers, and authors. We are members of the SC Humanities Council, the SC Writers Association, Columbia Writers Alliance, the SC Literary Review, The Jasper Project, Deckle Edge, and so many other collaborative projects. We enjoy each others’ company and champion each others’ work.
This radio show is a weekly broadcast on a local talk radio station in Columbia, S.C. that is simultaneously streamed on the internet. The recordings will be turned into a podcast for access by people anytime, anywhere. On the show, we will explore the writing craft: brainstorming, process, publishing, and sales. We’ll interview SC authors with books to sell and SC writers with ideas to work up into stories.
Led by Dr. Kasie Whitener, a professional writer and University of South Carolina instructor, the podcast will work to promote SC writers and fill a gap in writer education in this state: weekly writing craft workshops. Dr. Whitener has multiple projects that bridge different communities around a single common interest; this project uses writing — fiction, poetry, and non-fiction — as a way to bring together the diverse talented people of Columbia and SC as a whole.
We are Pat Conroy’s legacy, home to Sue Monk Kidd and Ron Rash, we are a state with stories that need to be told. WriteOnSC is a show to develop and showcase South Carolina authors.
