The South Carolina Center for Oral Narration was officially established as a Center by the Commission of Higher Education in 1999. Presently housed in Arts and Letters, the Center serves to document, preserve and present oral traditions. Its humble, yet growing collection of publications and documentations is housed in the Center and USC Sumter’s Anderson Library; resources are available to researchers and lovers of oral traditions.

The Center sponsors The Jack Doyle Storytelling Festival and other spoken word events.
