The Distinguished Writer-in-Residence Program brings significant contemporary writers to campus to meet with students and faculty, to visit classes, and to give readings, talks, and symposia. The program extends across the campus into the surrounding community. Its goal is not only to teach and inspire Carolina's writing students, but also to provide a way for the public to join in the celebration of the literary arts.
The program builds upon the legacy of the Morgan Writer-in-Residence Program, which brought an outstanding array of noted writers to campus from 1993 to 2012.
