Are you a local filmmaker or author looking for exposure here in the Lowcountry? Then look no further than the Charleston County Public Libraries, which is looking to add local editions to its shelves.

The public library’s leader said in a press release last week that she hopes to soon add locally produced works to its collection of items in circulation.

“This initiative has been years in the making, and we are so happy to provide space in our collection of books and movies for the local voices of our community,” said Angela Craig, the library’s executive director. “It is our mission to be inclusive in the offerings of our materials and this new initiative will help diversify our collection to include the work of our own community’s writers and artists.”

If you want to be considered for the opportunity, apply through the online author/filmmaker submission form on their website. Preference is given to artists living and working in South Carolina.
