Calling all alumni writers!

Web Exclusives


Calling all alumni/ae who make or have made their livelihood by the pen, typewriter, computer keyboard or phone text pad.

On March 23-24, 2012, Wake Forest will host a symposium to celebrate Wake Forest writers and all who love the written word in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, reporting, criticism, social networking and other genre.

There will be opportunities for alumni/ae writers to lead Wake Forest students in conducting writing workshops in area public schools. Professor of English Emeritus Ed Wilson (’43) and Tom Hayes (’79), son of Harold Hayes, will lead a retrospection of Wake Forest writers of the past and will inaugurate the Wake Forest Writers Hall of Fame.

One day will be filled with panels and readings and book signings by alumni/ae authors. Plan to join us for a weekend of literary outreach to our region and literary homage to our liberal arts and creative heritage. For more information write to Tom Phillips (’74, MA ’78, P ’06) at
