About the Morgan Writer-in-Residence Program
The Morgan Writer-in-Residence Program, sponsored by Allen and Musette Morgan of Memphis, Tennessee, brought twenty writers of distinction to campus from 1993 to 2012. The Morgan Writers-in-Residence taught courses, met with students and faculty, and gave lectures, readings, and symposia. The Morgans wanted the Writer-in-Residence Program not only to help 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 fulfilled both goals with impressive successes. The Department of English and Comparative Literature and its Creative Writing Program are grateful to the Morgans for the profound impact of their generosity.
