After 20 years and 20 renowned authors, UNC’s Morgan Writer-in-Residence Program has lost its funding.
Beverly Taylor, chairwoman for the English and comparative literature department, said the program does not have funding past this year.
Alumni Allen and Musette Morgan began the annual literary program in 1993 and have funded it through this spring.
“They have only and always expressed real pleasure and pride in the program,” Taylor said.
The program brought established novelists, playwrights and poets — among other writers — to campus to teach workshops, meet with students and faculty, and provide a keynote lecture.
