Local Experts: Charleston, Sandy Lang

Sandy Lang uses the coastal shores of South Carolina and Maine as the inspiration for her travel writing. She’s the Charleston, South Carolina, local expert for Travel + Leisure, and is currently the producer and stylist for Peter Frank Edwards, a storytelling photographer whose work appears in prominent magazines, books, and brand marketing materials. Sandy graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in journalism, leading her to a job as a staff reporter for her local newspaper, The Sun News, and then a communications director for a local non-profit. She went on to land the jobs of travel editor for Charleston magazine and contributing editor for Maine—roles she currently holds today. She’s been recognized for her writing, including the 2016 and 2021 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award from the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation (SATW).
