Deckle Edge

In February, a new literary festival, called Deckle Edge, after the frame used in manual paper-making that leaves a ragged or feathered edge, debuted in Columbia, SC. Thanks to a grant from the national SinC organization, the Palmetto Chapter was able to invite Hank Phillippi Ryan to participate in a panel and be interviewed by Cathy Pickens. The festival featured other chapter members, including J.E. Thompson and Sasscer Hill. Carla Damron’s recent novel, The Stone Necklace, was highlighted as a “One Book, One Community” read. I truly enjoyed teaching a workshop about “Plotting Strategies for Short Stories, Novels, and Plays.”
