About us


Living Words would not be what it is and where it is today if not for the help from our incredible college students. Each became interested in the program for various reasons and left their own unique and important stamp on it.  You will see many of their names as authors on writing exercises. Most volunteered their time leading Living Words writers groups, thereby making an impact on more than 200 older adults in Upstate SC from 2008-2013. A special thank you to Wofford College’s Success Initiative (now called “The Space: Impact”) that has allowed many of the students below (marked “SI”) the opportunity to work on Living Words.
