Last year, the Charleston City Paper unveiled its first Literary Issue. Featuring work from S.C. Poet Laureate Marjory Wentworth, sci-fi phenom and one-time Charlestonian Hugh Howey, and the late, great Ken Burger, the issue was a blast. And so this year, we decided to give it a go again — fingers crossed, fingers crossed. This year we have an exciting combo of poets, playwrights, and prose writers, including young adult author Ryan Graudin and PURE playwright in residence David Lee Nelson. Enjoy.
