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 A highlight of the symposium is the announcement of the Eudora Welty Prize for an unpublished book of scholarship.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 October 27-29, 2022 on the MUW campus and are free and open to the public. The Symposium will also be live-streamed on Facebook at our WeltySymposium Group.

The Welty Gala will be held at Trotter Convention Center, October 28, 2022, and the Welty Art Exhibit will be on display in Summer Hall.

The Welty Series is made possible through the generous support of the Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation.
