Please join us for a conversation with award-winning novelist, short story writer, poet, essayist and creative writing professor Elizabeth Cox.
Cox received the Robert Penn Warren Award for Fiction and was inducted into the Fellowship of Southern Writers in 2011. Her novel Night Talk received the Lillian Smith Award from the Southern Regional Council, the University of Georgia Libraries and Georgia Center for the Book.
In addition to four novels, Cox has published a recent collection of poetry I Have Told You and Told You and a collection of short stories called Bargains in the Real World. Of this story collection, poet Mary Oliver wrote, "Those who know Elizabeth Cox as a person and as a writer know that she is continually courageous and melodious and has never yet softened the difficult facts of the world. Her stories are treasures, full of truth, possibility, and beauty."
Two of her stories have been featured on NPR; “The Third of July” was an O’Henry Prize winner.
Cox has also received the North Carolina Fiction Award - Individual Artist Grant, a Massachusetts Arts Council Grant, and Fellowships from Yaddo and MacDowell writers’ colonies.
She was the 2003 Jack Kerouac Writer-in-Residence at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and has also taught at Duke University, University of Michigan, Tufts University, Boston University, the Bennington Low Residency Program, and MIT. She recently retired from the John Cobb Chair of Humanities at South Carolina's Wofford College, a chair she shared with her husband C. Michael Curtis.
