Please send your entry by midnight on Monday, October 15th. More info below.

We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!


The smell of powdered sugar on elephant ears at the State Fair …

The sound of rain dancing on your grandmother’s tin roof …

The taste of a sun-warmed strawberry picked and eaten straight from the vine …

The sight of the mist that folds into clouds over the conjunction of the Broad and Saluda Rivers …

The tickle of summer sweat as it skittles down your back on a famously hot Columbia day …

All these sensations and more make us realize how unique and delicious living in the South Carolina Midlands is
