LILA was formed in the fall of 2004, with the goal of starting a writing center in Charleston. In the process, we realized that Charleston itself is a center for writing. With so many literary events appealing to both readers and writers, we want to be the hub where you can come to discover more about low country authors and upcoming book events!
While a brick-and-mortar center remains our ultimate goal, LILA has already become a center for all things literary.
Started by two poets, Marjory Wentworth, South Carolina’s Poet Laureate, and Carol Ann Davis, editor of Crazyhorse, LILA’s executive board now includes poets, fiction writers, spoken-word artists, and journalists.
