Event Description:
EUDORA WELTY – Starts 9/18 (Mondays 1:10-3:10 p.m. for 3 weeks) by Janice Moore
 
Can a Mississippi woman who wrote fiction in the shadow of William Faulkner survive into the 21st Century?  Eudora Welty won every possible literary prize (the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, eight O'Henry Awards, etc.) except the Nobel Prize in Literature, which Faulkner won.  Widely traveled, she was also a "shrewd observer" of her times.  Here is a first class writer who infuses her stories with both humor and life enriching themes.  Anyone who writes or aspires to write fiction can profit from her masterful techniques, and anyone can relate to and learn from the universal life dramas she presents growing out of southern soil.
 
This class will also will also reflect on the relationships Welty had with other writers, notably and perhaps surprisingly the author of detective novels Ross Macdonald.
 
Janice Moore enjoyed a long teaching career in the English Department at Young Harris College, serving as Chair of  the Humanities Division for eight years and teaching a variety of literature classes as well as creative writing.  For a dozen years she served as poetry editor for Georgia Journal.  Her own poetry has been published in many journals, anthologies, and in her chapbook Teaching the Robins. In 2010 she published an article in The Flannery O'Connor Review about O'Connor's correspondence with Betty Hester, a former Young Harris College student.
