Courtesy Conroy Festival

Charleston authors Cinelle Barnes, Mary Whyte, Brad Taylor and Gary Jackson will headline this year’s Pat Conroy Literary Festival. The festival, hosted online between Nov. 5-8, will also feature Upstate writer Latria Graham.

Now in its fifth year, the Pat Conroy Literary Festival hosts writer workshops, panel discussions, exhibits and author presentations. The event is hosted by the Pat Conroy Literary Center.

Each headlining authors has found success in several different avenues. Barnes is the award-winning author of “Monsoon Mansion” and “Malaya,” Taylor is a New York Times bestselling author for his Pike Logan series of thrillers, Whyte is a Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award recipient and Jackson is an award-winning poet and associate poetry editor at Crazyhorse.

(Bonus: Graham, who has contributed to Garden & Gun and Outside, appeared on last week’s Longform podcast.)

Registration for the festival and workshops can be found online.
