Clemson has a rich legacy of writers and thinkers. James Dickey played football for the Clemson Tigers long before he wrote the novel Deliverance. Barry Hannah wrote many of his early, iconic short stories while teaching in Clemson’s Department of English (1966-1973). Kurt Vonnegut, Joyce Carol Oates and Eudora Welty each contributed work to the pages of The South Carolina Review. In the first ten years of the Annual Clemson Literary Festival, we have been pleased to continue this legacy by hosting the following poets, prose writers, and journalists, listed below. These authors – including several Pulitzer Prize winners, Poets Laureate, and National Book Award Winners – rank among the most important living authors at work today.
