October 23-25, 2014

The Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium is held each October in honor of The W's most famous alumna. A diverse group of Southern writers and scholars are invited to present their work. A highlight of the symposium is the announcement of the Eudora Welty Prize for an unpublished book of scholarship.

All Symposium events will be held on the MUW campus and are free and open to the public. The Symposium is made possible through the generous support of the Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation.

Welty Writers' Symposium 2014 Schedule

Posters for the Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium have gone up all over campus and Columbus in recent weeks. They include an overview of the schedule of readings for the weekend. Each panel is listed with the authors who will appear in order from left to right. View the full-sized poster.

Events have also been created for each session on Facebook, LibraryThing, and Goodreads. If you're planning to come to any session, we'd love it if you say you'll attend on one or more of these platforms, since that helps us spread the word when your friends see your events. But even if you don't announce it on social media, you are more than welcome to drop by any of the sessions whenever you can!
