Becoming Southern Writers: Essays in Honor of Charles Joyner (2016, USC Press) is a collection of essays that pay tribute to the late South Carolinian Charles Joyner’s more than fifty years as a writer of Southern history, folklore, music and literature. (Dr. Joyner died on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.) The contributors, exceptional writers of fact, fiction, and poetry, describe their experiences of living in and writing about the South.

The editors, Dr. Orville Vernon Burton and Dr. Eldred “Wink” Prince, talk with Dr. Edgar about the writers, their contributions, and about the life and work of the man who inspired them all, Dr. Charles Joyner.
