Charleston is awash in creativity. We see it all the time across the city, with local artists, entrepreneurs, designers and others showcasing innovative ways of thinking and processing mundane and complex everyday issues. This week, we’re excited to welcome back our Literary Issue. Some veteran City Paper contributors return this year, joining some new voices lending their cultural and personal perspectives to the Holy City. Know a writer who would fit well in next year’s Lit Issue? We’re always looking for fresh voices: email Enjoy. —Sam Spence
