PDFPF-A HISTORY

The Pee Dee Fiction and Poetry Festival originated in 2006 as the Pee Dee Fiction Festival, the brainchild of Francis Marion University President Luther F. Carter. Now an annual autumn event coordinated by members of the Francis Marion University English faculty, the festival has expanded to include poets as well as fiction writers.
