Established in 1990, the South Carolina Writers Association (formerly South Carolina Writers Workshop) is a literary arts 501(c)3 non-profit organization offering a supportive environment for people to become better writers and is supported in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission. SCWA membership is open to anyone at least 18 years of age, providing a wide range of opportunities to improve one’s writing, network with others, and gain practical how-to information about getting published. There are local chapters around the state.

The mission of SC Humanities is to enrich the cultural and intellectual lives of all South Carolinians. Established in 1973, this 501(c) 3 organization is governed by a volunteer 20-member Board of Directors comprised of community leaders from throughout the state. It presents and/or supports literary initiatives, lectures, exhibits, festivals, publications, oral history projects, videos and other humanities-based experiences that directly or indirectly reach more than 250,000 citizens annually.
