Inheritance marks the entry of novelist Janette Turner Hospital into the world of South Carolina story. Hospital, who serves as distinguished writer-in-residence at the University of South Carolina, selected these stories from more than 200 winners in 17 years of the statewide creative writing contest.
The authors represent an extraordinarily diverse cross-section of the state's literary community. Some are full-time writers or teachers; others find time during law careers or engineering jobs to produce their art. They live in small towns like Clemson and Ravenel; resorts areas like Hilton Head and Camden; and major cities like Columbia and Spartanburg.
Inheritance is a collaboration between the South Carolina Arts Commission and Spartanburg's Hub City Writers Project. The Fiction Project has been co-sponsored by the Charleston Post & Courier since 1993 and by The State newspaper prior to that.
