Tom Mack: Wordsmith’s passion becomes lifelong career – Aiken Standard

Since 1990, Dr. Tom Mack has written his column, “Arts and Humanities,” every week without fail for the Aiken Standard.

Over 30 years, that’s a lot of columns, and a lot of words, but words always have come easily for Mack. He has turned words into a long and successful career, not only as a columnist but also as an English professor at USC Aiken for nearly 40 years and an author or editor of what soon will be eight books.
