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 A highlight of the symposium is the announcement of the Eudora Welty Prize for an unpublished book of scholarship.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.

Thanks to all who made the 28th Annual Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium a success!

Thank you to the Robert M. Hearin Foundation, Dr. Borsig, Dr. Richardson, the Department of Languages, Literature and Philosophy, the Department of Music, University Relations, Resources Management, Sodexo, the MUW Foundation, the MUW Book End, our authors, our audience, and everyone else involved.
