The Arts Council of York County presents the 17th Annual Literary Competition, highlighting the best in short stories and poetry from across the Southeast United States; and the 9th Annual Youth Literary Competition, highlighting the best in short stories and poetry by students enrolled in K-12 programs from across York County, SC.
*The Perihelion Book Club, as a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, began in 1898 as a literary and social club in Rock Hill. Over the years, club members, individually and as a club, have supported literacy in the community in a variety of ways - by conducting story hour at elementary schools, purchasing books for school libraries and funding a scholarship at Winthrop University. Today its members continue to share their love of literature with each other and to eagerly support literacy efforts in the community by raising funds at an auction held annually at its December meeting. The Perihelion Book Club is very proud to encourage writers of short stories and poetry by funding prizes for this competition.
